"With the new high-efficiency snow guns we can make more snow faster but with less energy and less compressed air so it's a win-win for skiing and the environment," said Stephen Nichipor, programs director of Bretton Woods.

"What sets Bretton apart from other mountains is the variety. It has a lot of great wide open easy well-groomed trails that Bretton is known for but we added a lot in terms of glade skiing.... The improved Stickney Glades took that up a level, plus the new Stickney Cabin and we opened up a lot of the steeper terrain as well," said Nichipor.
