Windham Mountain News 8/23

August 24, 2018


Less Than 100 Days Until
The Winter Season Starts

The mornings are chilly, shipments of skis and winter gear are arriving, and the mountain ops team is hard at work wrapping up improvements. Energy efficiency is a leading factor in our summer capital projects, including replacing over 2 miles of snowmaking pipe. Nearly 100 new high effeciency snow guns are being installed. Of course, the star of the show is the new high-speed six passenger lift, and towers will start going up in the coming weeks!

BreezyGrass at The Wheelhouse Tomorrow 8/24

Music on the Mountain will be on the mountain this week! Wet weather this summer has presented a challenge for this event, but this week, it's finally going to cooperate. Take a free Skyride to The Wheelhouse Lodge, where we'll have an outdoor bar and BBQ set up and Americana-Bluegrass band, BreezyGrass, will play live on the deck from 6pm to 9pm. Bring your own chairs and blankets, but no coolers will be permitted. Thank you, Mother Nature, for giving us a Friday free of rain!
