For the second time in two decades, Waterville Valley opened its Snow's Mountain complex to alpine skiers on Saturday.

Despite days of warm temperatures, enough natural snow remained Saturday to open four intermediate trails on Snow's Mountain. General Manager Tim Smith greeted season passholders wearing 80s attire, as part of Waterville's 80's Weekend.

Home of the original Waterville Valley ski area in 1941, the 600 vertical foot Snow's Mountain became chairlift served in 1974-75. While the area often operated on weekends, holiday weeks, and nights, alpine skiing had been offered for one total day since Booth Creek purchased the ski area in 1996. The Sununu family purchased Waterville Valley ski area in 2010 and operated Snow's Mountain on February 28, 2015. The Snow's Mountain chairlift operates for bikers in the off season.

Meanwhile, Waterville Valley unveiled the names of its new Green Peak trails 51 through 60 today: Chandler's Way, Bourbon Street, Mean Jean's Ravine, Wayne Wong Way, Clean Shaven, Pfsoi's Pfolly, Governor's Run, Piano Man, Calvert's Crossing, and Ruffled Feathers.
