Mount Sunapee’s energy management program continues to reduce the resort’s carbon footprint:
Mount Sunapee is purchasing 30 additional HKD high-efficiency snow guns, bringing its inventory to 48 guns. These guns can produce the same amount of snow in temperatures above 25 degrees (which are common during early season snowmaking) as older, less-efficient guns, while using only 12–25% as much compressed air per gun. These guns will continue to reduce the resort’s reliance on diesel air compressors.

The expansion will add a chairlift to reach the summit of Green Peak. The overall layout will offer more gradual levels of terrain challenges for novice and beginner skiers and riders.
The remaining ski resorts in New Hampshire have plans to open in early – mid December, depending on conditions.
