Whaleback to reopen Monday

Posted: Updated:

ENFIELD, N.H. (AP) - After emerging from a mountain of debt, New Hampshire's Whaleback ski area is reopening in a limited capacity on Monday.

The ski area in Enfield 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, with plans to open for the season on Saturday. That got pushed back until Monday, and even with the delay, there's a lot of work remaining 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.
