Major Summer Grooming

Mount Washington Alpine Resort will spent upwards of $200,000 on summer grooming this year. “We’re proposing giving the mountain a haircut,” Resort President Peter Gibson explained.

In the past couple of years the resort has concentrated on cutting lift lines and bike trails with minimal grooming. Meanwhile, the vegetation on some of the trails has grown. The Resort will spend $125,000 recontouring some of the terrain, with possibly another $65,000 in cleaning up trails.

The Resort was already committed to a $200,000 upgrade to its sewage treatment plant under its regular maintenance program. “We make sure our treatment system is working and meeting regulations,”

Gibson said. “We respect the people who are downstream and we want to make sure our standards are maintained.”
