ENFIELD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire's Whaleback ski area is reopening, but not this weekend.
The ski area in Enfeild was more than $1 million in debt when it shut down in March. Since then, the nonprofit Upper Valley Snow Sports Foundation has purchased it, and had hoped to open for the season on Saturday.
The opening has now been pushed back to Monday, and much work remains to get the mountain fully operational. Foundation board member Peter Krass told the Valley News that Jan. 20 is the target date for having all of Whaleback's runs covered with snow and open, and the lodge kitchen cranking out its menu at full strength.
