Waterville Valley Green Peak Trail Cutting Underway

In a recent update on the Waterville Valley web site, a photo was posted of CEO Chris Sununu cutting the first tree on Green Peak. Hermit Woods Trailbuilders has been hired to clear the new trails. A request for comment was not immediately returned by Waterville Valley.

A year and a half after obtaining approval from the White Mountain National Forest for the long awaited Green Peak expansion, Waterville Valley requested a change in the scope, downsizing the original high speed quad proposal to a relocated triple chairlift. The change was approved by the Forest Service in early 2015. As of May 24, no removal work has taken place on the World Cup Triple.

Phase 1 construction is expected to include 8 trails and 12 acres of glades serviced by a refurbished 4,380 feet long by 1,011 foot vertical triple chairlift. It is not yet known what will be open for the 2015-16 season.
