SAM Magazine—Henniker, N.H., Mar. 1, 2013—Pats Peak Ski will launch Operation Cascade Basin this summer, a planned expansion that will add a new triple chairlift and 20-plus acres of new terrain encompassing up to six new trails and glades over the next three years.

This summer Pats will install the high-capacity triple chairlift and cut at least four new trails in a previously undeveloped east-facing portion of the mountain. Additional terrain will be added in future years. All of the trails will be oriented toward novice and intermediate skiers and riders. Experts will have a couple of glades to choose from, including one with snowmaking coverage. Pats will also expand the snowmaking system in lock-step with the new terrain.

“An added benefit to this is that we can keep some key personnel working during the summer months. We are a good old fashioned Yankee operation, and we try to build as much as we can in-house. We will dovetail local talent and contractors when needed,” said Kris Blomback, Pats Peak GM.

“We are going to open up the naming of the new trails via a Facebook contest. We had a tremendous amount of input last year in naming our new trail, Backdraft, so we’ll do it again,” he added.


As a matter of speech,
