It may be March, but Mother Nature hasn’t gotten the memo, and has been dumping heaps of fresh powder on the Upper Valley. Last week Whaleback Mountain received more than 20 inches of fresh snowfall, and yesterday, 8 more inches was added. 29 of Whaleback's 30 trails are open.
Now is the perfect time to take advantage of spring skiing at your community mountain. Whaleback will be open the following times this week:
- Wednesday 3/14 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- Thursday 3/15 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
- Friday 3/16 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
- Saturday 3/17 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
- Sunday 3/18 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Whaleback offers several "Steals and Deals" to make skiing extra-affordable for your family. The last two hours of any day are just $20, as are the first two hours on Sunday mornings. There are other resident and partner discounts available on the website
Check out the pub and cafe while you're there, as well. Whaleback is one of the few mountains that is lighted, so remember that you can take advantage and ski after work or after school with the kids.
Whaleback has been your community mountain since 1968, and is owned by the non-profit Upper Valley Snow Sports Foundation (UVSSF). The UVSSF's goal is to keep local skiing alive in the Upper Valley. In addition to lighted skiing, Whaleback offers a Thursday Night Race League
, after-school ski lessons
, and scholarships for kids who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford to ski.
The mountain offers camps
during Winter Vacation, as well as a racing league for young skiers. And the best part is, the mountain is so close--it's right off Exit 16 on Interstate 89, so it's easily accessible from most of the Upper Valley.
What are you waiting for? Time to enjoy this weather! Head to Whaleback and have some fun!
