This will be Waterville Valley Resort’s biggest expansion project in more than 30 years.

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - August 29th, 2016 -

WATERVILLE VALLEY, NH – Waterville Valley Resort announces today the start of the Green Peak Expansion project, scheduled to open for the 2016/17 Winter Season. This first phase of the project will include the cutting of 10 new trails to provide 45 new acres of skiing and riding and will be serviced by a fixed grip chairlift. 
This will be Waterville Valley Resort’s biggest expansion project in more than 30 years. 
Jack Sanders, a longtime skier at Waterville Valley and attorney for the Resort said “I congratulate Chris Sununu, his leadership team and the management of Waterville Valley Holdings on launching the first expansion of the ski area. Chris Sununu is President of the ownership group which is the fourth company to own Waterville Valley, but the first to expand the ski area.” Sanders continued, “I have been skiing in Waterville Valley since Tom Corcoran developed it as a first class ski area and now with new leadership, the updated master plan is on the road to being fulfilled. What is amazing is to see a ski area in New England invest on the heels of the winter we experienced with so little snow.” 
“The expansion process has been very exciting for us internally,” said CEO Chris Sununu. “There’s been a lot of hard work done by members of our team and the U.S. Forest Service to make sure this project is a success. We are especially excited to be partnering with local New Hampshire contractors for this project.” M.E. Johnston Construction of Thornton, NH and Wade Reed Logging of Rumney will provide the site work while SkyTrans Manufacturing of Contoocook, NH will be installing the lift. 
“We are honored to be working with Waterville Valley Resort on the Green Peak expansion project,” said SkyTrans GM Rich Combs. “This project builds on our history together starting when O.D. Hopkins Associates, the predecessor to SkyTrans, who installed the very first lifts at Waterville Valley Resort, and the nearly 50 years of experience our company has gained since then in ski lift and amusement ride design and manufacture. We look forward to contributing to the success of this project, the future of Waterville Valley Resort, and New England Skiing.”
