Earliest Opening in 14 Years at Windham Mountain Resort Season Starts on the East Peak for the First Time in History
WINDHAM, N.Y. (November 15, 2018) Windham Mountain Resort will celebrate a historic Opening Day on Saturday, November 17, 2018, with the earliest opening in 14 years. For the first time in The Resort’s 58 seasons of winter operations, the East Peak will open ahead of terrain on the West Peak.
“Mother Nature offered us two solid windows of snowmaking temperatures at the summit this week, so we decided it made sense to go for the upper elevations of the East Peak first. Our snowmaking team anxiously sprung into action and was able to get great coverage from top to bottom for an early season opening,” says Chip Seamans, President and General Manager of Windham Mountain Resort. “Snowmakers will continue to build the base depth for as long as temperatures permit and 5-8” of natural snow is expected to fall Thursday night into Friday,” Seamans said.
Skiers and riders can look forward to enjoying $8 Million in capital investments for the 2018/2019 season at Windham Mountain Resort, including Westside Six, a high speed, detachable, six passenger chairlift on the West Peak, RFID lift access technology, snowmaking and grooming upgrades.
Lifts will be open from 9:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, November 17, 2018 and Sunday, November 18, 2018. Guests are encouraged to reference the Mountain Report at windhammountain.com for the latest conditions and operating updates beyond the weekend.
