Whaleback Mountain is now a locally owned non profit operated by the Upper Valley Snowsports Foundation. There are many great programs and services they provide. Please support the local mountain's efforts as they are a cornerstone in our communities to keep people outdoors and active. Here is some background.

Why UVSSF Has Purchased and Is Enhancing Whaleback Mountain

The UVSSF, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), has purchased Whaleback Mountain Parcel A and associated assets. This purchase is in line with UVSSF’s mission to support snow sports in the Upper Valley. There are a number of compelling reasons driving this mission:
Whaleback is an invaluable community asset that serves thousands of adult and youth winter sports enthusiasts annually;
Whaleback offers programs and pricing that allow a large Upper Valley population to participate in snow sports who otherwise could not afford to;
It has been made evident that there is a significant need for a training facility that caters to the alpine and freestyle disciplines in both skiing and snowboarding;
There is a noteworthy number of youths who do not participate in traditional team sports who greatly benefit from Whaleback and related programs;
The purchase of Whaleback by a nonprofit provides an opportunity for making Whaleback a sustainable business, therefore greatly extending its life as a community asset.



UVSSF feels strongly that Whaleback’s benefit to the community must be preserved and strengthened and that its future can best be secured by the nonprofit’s purchase.

Educational Programs & Camps
Over 300 youths attended affordable weekly after school instructional programs. These students come from nine towns: Canaan, Enfield, Grantham, Hartford, Hartland, Lebanon, Plainfield, Weathersfield, and Windsor. Many are beginners and rent equipment, and might not ski or ride otherwise.
More than 130 youths participated in our winter vacation camps that include full day instruction and progression plans for each student. This program has very discounted prices.



Teams/Clubs
-The Whaleback Mountain Club has 70 young athletes between the ages of 5 and 17, and families. There are athletes in developmental and competitive programs. All WMC families receive a 25% discount on season passes.
-75 athletes with the Ford Sayre Ski Council trained at Whaleback weekly.
-More than 25 Kimball Union Academy athletes trained weekly, and more than 25 participated in a recreational program.
-Cardigan Mountain School had 18 athletes training at Whaleback weekly. Cardigan recreational skiers and snowboarders also visited.

Events
Whaleback hosted a number of events for all ages that include the disciplines of alpine, moguls, and slopestyle. More than 500 athletes from the Northeast competed at Whaleback this winter. Events included: Masters of the Mountain (150) young athletes; private school alpine race (100), 3 USSA mogul events (230+), USSA slopestyle (60), KUA Alum race (25). In addition, there is our weekly adult race league with 220-plus participants.

Pats Peak just announced new trails and more for the coming 2014.15 winter ski and snowboard season. Two New Trails and One New Glade For The 2014/2015 Season along with snowmaking improvements and more. This is the 52nd consecutive ski and snowboard season under the same local family ownership. Pats Peak Ski Area improvements for the 14/15 season including two new trails and one new glade as part of the Cascade Basin expansion.

Cascade Basin
2 New Trails and 1 Glade - Pats Peak will unveil 2 New Trails and 1 New Glade in the Cascade Basin area. These new trails will be lined with state-of-the-art “snowflake technology” to continue to provide quality snow surfaces you’ve come to expect at Pats Peak.

The new beginner trail, Cascade Brook, will meander and follow the contour lines nicely with some great twists and turns. Adventure seekers will be able to pop off skiers left into a new gladed tree section.

Scirocco (shuh-rok-oh) is a black diamond trail that falls away skiers' right off of the Crosswind trail. She’ll cut left, then right through some trees all the while giving you some of the best sun and bumps on the mountain. She’ll drop you off at the bottom of the lift where you’ll get a chance to catch a break.

Additional Energy-Efficient Snowmaking Guns - Every year the snowmaking efforts gain enhancements to provide even more snowmaking power to the trails. This is a must for ensuring quality conditions all season.

This season seven additional Fan Guns from Snow Machines Inc. will be added to the snowmaking arsenal to improve snow output. Fan guns require 80-85% less compressed air than other technologies, while putting out more snow in marginal temperature conditions.

An additional 20 new low energy snowmaking towers from HKD Snowmakers will also be added to the fleet.

More Rental Equipment
Pats Peak is home to northern New England’s largest rental shop. Every season the Starting Gate Rental Shop continues to add to its already impressive rental fleet. This season PATS PEAK has invested over $100,000 in new rental equipment including skis, boots, junior skis, junior boots, twin tip skis, ski poles, helmets, Burton Learn-to-Ride snowboards, bindings and snowboard boots.

The state-of-the-art 9,600 square foot Rental Shop provides fast service to renters along with a carpet lift that takes guests and their equipment up to the slopes.

Updated High-Speed Internet Service
And finally if all goes according to plan, we will have 10 times the wireless internet access capabilities in our lodge with an all new high-speed internet service. There are lots of moving parts to make this happen but if the utility company does what is says it will do, the logjams will be a thing of the past.
