Waterville Valley Ski Resort Announces Over $500,000 in Improvements for 2010-11 Season

Waterville Valley, NH - Twenty five more energy efficient snowmaking tower guns and a new grooming cat top the list of immediate investments announced by the new owners at Waterville Valley for the coming season.

"We completed the purchase of Waterville Valley on October 13 and are now going as fast as we can to make improvements before the start of the ski season", said Bob Fries, General Manager of Waterville Valley Ski Resort Ltd, "The increased snowmaking capacity will help Waterville Valley leverage its 4,000' elevation, allowing us to open a greater variety of terrain for Thanksgiving and early December." Opening date for Waterville Valley is set for Saturday, November 20.

Base Lodge Upgrade
Major upgrades to the resort's main base lodge will include new ground floor bathrooms, additional family bathrooms and refreshed Alpine Grille food service area and menu.

Expanded Ski and Snowboard Rentals
Waterville Valley will be adding to their ski and snowboard rental inventory featuring the new mini Burton snowboards for kids. "Each season, parents seem to want their kids to start skiing and snowboarding at younger ages", explains Peter Weber, Snowsports Director, "In response, we're always looking for innovations in kids equipment that will let them start young but still have a blast. This season, we'll be introducing the new super mini snowboard from Burton into our Explorers Kamps for ages 4-6. The new design makes it easier for kids to roll from edge to edge and actually build skills on their very first days on snow. Waterville Valley already has mini skis so now parents and kids will have a choice."
