The newest trail, WinTuck, is a reclaimed work road that will offer expert skiers and riders an easier track down the East Peak. Where’s Charlie and Assembly Line, two previously unnamed and uncounted trails, will bring Windham Mountain’s total trail count to 49.

East Peak trail Wedgie will now be known as World Cup in honor of the UCI World Cup Bike Races held at Windham Mountain over the past two summers.

The bulk of capital improvements focus on Windham Mountain’s snowmaking and grooming operations. The resort will widen both Whistler and Wolverine on skier’s right at the top of the mountain. Whistler and Old Wolverine will be outfitted top to bottom with new energy-efficient snow guns.

In total, Windham Mountain will invest $400,000 in their snowmaking system including a state-of-the-art pump house that provides increased water flow and efficiency. The purchase of two new groomers, announced earlier this summer, is another investment made to improve snow quality.

Skiers and riders will also notice new trail signs, which are the same timber style as the signs throughout the base lodge.

“In addition to investments made on the mountain, other improvements such as the new zip line, competition center and renovations to both the base lodge and Club, are aimed at improving the guest experience at Windham Mountain,” said Chip Seamans, general manager and COO.

All outdoor staff will sport new uniforms making them easily identifiable to guests. A basket check area in Mt. Express will provide a second location for convenient storage at a flat rate. The resort has also purchased new parking lot and Winwood shuttles.

All capital projects are moving forward and are scheduled to be completed before opening day on Thanksgiving (weather permitting)
