Wachusett Closes Out Early/Late Winter After 135 Days
It was one of the longest seasons ever for Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, Mass, featuring one of its earliest openings and latest closings.
Everyone was sorry to see such an incredible season come to an end,” Wachusett’s Tom Meyers said. “It was a memorable winter right up to the end.”
In fact, April 13, the last day of operations, saw 19 trails open with five lifts rolling; base depths of up to 32 inches, and nearly 1,000 skiers and riders on the mountain. Even better, the springtime-like temperature was 68 degrees.
Racing programs also proved to be winners this season.
“Our skiers had tremendous results at many levels,” said General Manager David Crowley. “It’s a true testimony to how strong our training and coaching programs have been.”
