Night Skiing Expanding
Summer boasts the most light of all of Mount Washington’s seasons. But it’s lighting that’s on everybody’s mind. “Next winter we are expanding night skiing, so we expect to have a lot more nighttime activities going on,” Resort Director of Marketing Karen Bonell said.
With night skiing comes the need for lighting – about a million dollars’ worth. Crews have been busy installing the infrastructure needed to light the Whiskey Jack Chair, which skiers can access from the terrain park and the Coaster. “Plus we’ll have the green chair running for beginner skiers and boarders,” she said.
The Green Chair has been lit for night activities for the past four seasons. The new terrain will be lit from 4:30–9 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. “By expanding night, that gives us people that maybe can’t get here during the day,” she said.
The Marmot level will feature nighttime food and beverage service, Fireweeds Restaurant will be open and so will Fat Teddy’s bar.
