First Flakes Falling

Services for Real Estate Pros with Jan Stearns, Waterville Valley Realty, Waterville Valley, NH

This morning I woke to big, fluffy white flakes falling from the sky!  It's 9 a.m. in Waterville Valley and - as the name implies - the White Mountains of New Hampshire are, indeed, white!  (Photo below: You can't tell from this picture, but it's snowing hard and obscuring views of the mountains!)Waterville Valley Resort's first snow of the season

With snow falling, it seems appropriate to mention what's new for this winter at Waterville Valley Ski Resort. 

The ski resort plans on opening Saturday, Nov. 21.  They spent over $600,000 this summer on key snowmaking and grooming projects.

1. 40 new low energy tower guns have been installed on White Caps and the Chute to ensure earlier and more expansive snowmaking in the early season.

2. A new Prinoth 350 snow cat has been added to the resort's extensive fleet for nightly grooming and for park maintenance.

3. Snowboarders will find a new line up of rails and boxes in Exhibition Park created by Luke Mathison. The resort will continue its popular signature features program including the Oakley Hubba and new Fuel-TV Skateledge.

4. Waterville's investment in online technology continues with the addition of online rentals. To get out on the slopes faster, ski and snowboard equipment can now be reserved at if purchased 48 hours in advance. Skiers and riders can also continue to buy lift tickets for $10 off if purchased 48 hours in advance at

5. A new Sport Thoma Retail Accessories Shop will open on the main floor of the base lodge, next to "Everything Waterville." It will be stocked with handwarmers, goggles, gloves and hats.

6. The Waterville Valley Snowboard Rental Shop has been fixed up with updated snowboard set-up stations to get riders out on their Burton boards even faster.

Waterville Valley has gotten even more family-friendly with several new programs for this winter:

$12 Sunday kids tickets
Kids ski free weekends
family ski lessons
3 p.m. Sunday checkout
Kids ski free NH school vacation week

Wow!  Is this early for your snow to begin?  Great information for all your skiers & snowboarders.  The picture is beautiful Jan - but I'm staying with the heat here in Texas!

We often have snowy trick-or-treating, but this is a little early for snow!  We heat our house with woodstoves, and we had to light our first fire of the season on Sept. 25!  This morning both the dog and cat were huddled in front of the wood stove!  Brrrr...  But, the snow gets us all in the mood for snowsports season!

Looks beautiful.  We'll be lucky to have a first snowfall by December.
