Windham Mountain Announces Opening Day for the 2021/2022 Season

 

Season starts on the West Peak after 36 hours of cold temperatures for snowmaking team

 

WINDHAM MOUNTAIN, NY (November 24, 2021) —Windham Mountain announces it will be celebrating its 2021-2022 season opening day on November 26, 2021.  After weeks of warmer weather, temperatures finally dropped low enough for the exceptional snowmaking team to start making snow.

 

Advanced and expert terrain only will be available, with openings on Upper/Lower Whistler, a blue square trail from the summit, Upper/Lower Wolverine, a combination double-black diamond and blue square trail, Warpath Chute, a blue square connecting trail, and The Wall, a double-black diamond connection.  Terrain will be serviced by one lift, the Westside Six (F Lift), a high-speed six-passenger chair.  Grooming will occur Friday morning prior to opening, and skiers and riders should note that early-season conditions will be present.  Mountain Express in the Base Lodge will be open with a limited menu, along with the Umbrella Bar, located on the mountain’s patio.

 

“The snowmaking team did an incredible job,” said Chip Seamans, President and General Manager of Windham Mountain .  “In a 36-hour window of cold they were able to put enough snow on the ground to open for the season.  We are excited to open the Friday after Thanksgiving and will expand terrain as quickly as possible.  We are looking forward to a great season,” said Seamans.

 

Lifts will be open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Friday, November 26, and from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday, November 27 and Sunday, November 28, 2021.  Windham Mountain will remain open for operation seven days a week following the weekend.  Opening day through December 3 will be designated as “green days” and tickets will be available for purchase at the mountain.  Advanced online purchase is still recommended at windhammountain.com, and additional information about our red/green day capacity calendar can also be found on our website.  Due to COVID-19, masks are required in Windham Mountain Sports and the 3500 Club. Guests are encouraged to reference the Mountain Report for the latest conditions and operating updates beyond the weekend.

 

Skiers and riders can look forward to enjoying over $4 million in capital investments for the 2021/2022 season at Windham Mountain, including an extension of automated snowmaking technology on community favorite trails Wraparound, Wonderama and Warpath Chute, as well as the grand opening and redevelopment of  Windham Kids Base Camp into a reengineered and modern space for kids to learn how to ski and ride.  Windham Mountain has been wholly focused on providing an “Above & Beyond” elevated experience for guests.
