WATERVILLE VALLEY — With forecasters watching a storm the could bring more snow to New Hampshire early next week, staff at Waterville Valley Resort announced plans to extend the ski season another weekend.

Waterville Valley Resort’s director of marketing, Matt Hesser, said with over 50 alpine trails and 30 kilometers of Nordic trails still open, the decision to extend the ski season by adding the April 14-15 weekend was an easy one.

“The snow conditions are incredible, and we want to play one more weekend before we all start to think summer and put our skis and boards away,” says Hesser. “The plan is to turn the lifts one more time and just have fun.”

According to Hesser, Waterville Valley Resort will remain open for daily operations through this Sunday, April 8, then close Monday, April 9, through Friday, April 13. The resort will reopen for skiing and riding operations on Saturday, April 14, and Sunday, April 15.

According to Hesser, Waterville Valley Resort plans to run the White Peaks Quad, the Valley Run Quad, the Green Peak Triple chair, with the Lower Pasture Carpet surface lift also a possibility. For food service, staff plan to open T-Bars Restaurant, the Marketplace, and the Schwendi Hutte at the summit.

Ticket prices will remain $45 for adults, $35 for teens, and $25 for seniors and kids 12 and under, said Hesser.
