Whaleback Planning To Start Work On New Surface Lift Next Summer


Since Jon Hunt was hired as the Executive Director of Whaleback Mountain in 2021, the New Hampshire ski area has created a strategetic vision to drive the once fledgling mountain into the future.

Over the past year and a half, many major improvements have been made. This includes the installation of a disc golf course, adding multiple summer activities(volleyball and corn hole leagues), renovating their double chairlift, making snowmaking improvements, holding a successful fundraiser for installing more night lights, and becoming an Indy Pass allied partner. As someone who lives around twenty minutes away from the mountain, it’s exciting to see Whaleback grow so quickly.

One of their upcoming will be the installation of a surface lift, which they are aiming to begin work on next summer. The surface lift being considered is a rope tow with a handlebar and a poma. An example of this kind of lift is pictured below.

The surface lift will start at the bottom of the skier’s right of the Lower Spout trail, and end above the top of the racing hut. It will be located on the skier’s right of Lower Spout (pictured below), which is their racing trail. The lift will also give access to Canyon and Scrimshaw, which is home to their terrain park. The new lift will help them get the mountain open earlier, and help improve skier/rider flow during peak periods.
