All the recent rain on the coast has resulted in lots of snow at Mount Washington Alpine Resort so they will be open earlier than expected. Friday, Dec. 2 marks the beginning of the 2011-12 winter season.
If you made a trip up to Mount Washington in the last few months, you probably noticed an array of heavy machinery moving earth and re-contouring the slopes beside the alpine lodge. The mountain’s learning terrain has gone through a major redevelopment in advance of the fast-approaching winter season.
“Our goal is to make the learning experience for beginner skiers and snowboarders one of the best in North America,” said Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations at the Resort. “We removed all of the old lifts in our Green Zone, replaced them with state of the art Magic Carpets and rebranded the area as Easy Acres.”
The carpets can be found on two new runs, Easy Street and The Big Easy.
Also new this season, night skiing on Sundays. Night skiing opens December 15 and will run every Thursday to Sunday as well as every night during holiday periods.
