This past week has been extremely cold! Cold as in the only double digits we saw all week were in the negatives. While not great for skiing or riding the lifts, it is still better than weather that is too hot. The best part of cold weather is snow making. Windham Mountain has been making snow nonstop for the whole week. We love seeing the snow gun shooting snow into the air and most trails covered in snow.

The extremely cold weather means that our ice skating rink is solid. The smooth glass like surface is ready for skaters.

Now to the savings. You still have time to book a room for this weekend. If you stay Friday, January 9, and you decide to stay Saturday, January 10, the rate is 50% off. Yes, 50% off of the second night. We also have a new special to announce. As of today, if you stay any Friday and Saturday night, non-holiday at the regular rate, we’ll take 30% off of the regular mid-week rate if you all reserve you room Sunday night.

There is more snow expected for Monday, so we’ll keep you posted on the natural snow in the area.

The cold weather is back! There were a few warm days and a little bit of rain, that wiped out all of the natural snow. Fortunately, both Windham and Hunter Mountains had incredible established, so there is still plenty of skiing. The small amount of rain did help fill the snow making ponds, and now that it is cold again the mountains are making more snow! We’re also getting some more natural snow, so hopefully there will be cross country skiing and snowshoeing again soon.

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it’s time to get your plans set. Windham Mountain and many of the restaurant in Windham will be having special dinners, live music, and fireworks. We still have a few rooms left available, and our anytime discount vouchers are valid all week. We look forward to seeing you.

Think snow!

We know it is time to get ready for the ski season when the ski mountains start making snow! Both Windham Mountain and Hunter Mountain have their snow guns running and we can’t help but think the ski season will start early this year. The air has been cold and the natural snow is sticking to the ground. More snow is in the forecast.
