Snow guns have been delivered and brush has been cut as Tenney Mountain prepares to reopen for the 2022-23 season.
After being idle since 2010, Tenney Mountain Development Group reopened the ski area in early 2018. The area operated on mostly natural snow until closing on March 8, 2020. Though backcountry skiing has been permitted, Tenney Mountain has not operated since the March 2020 COVID-19 shut down.
Following a recent ownership change, Michael Bouchard has resumed posting video updates to the area's Facebook page.
Main trails have been mowed for the first time since before the COVID-19 shutdown, while some trails (such as the expert Snap Dragon) have had decade-plus-old saplings cut.
All chairs have been removed from the Hornet double, while a number of chairs have been removed from the Eclipse triple for non-destructive testing.
The deck has been removed and interior upgrades are being made in the base lodge. Meanwhile, the deteriorating original base lodge at the foot of the Eclipse Triple has been razed.
Tenney still has its modern snowcat and small fleet of vintage SMI Wizzard fan guns on-site. The area recently took delivery of new HKD air-water guns.
