Windham Mountain, Windham, NY (October 5, 2018) -
Environmental impact, energy efficiency, the guest experience and providing the best product possible were guiding principles in capital improvement spending for the 2018/2019 season at Windham Mountain Resort.
Westside Six, a high speed, detachable, six passenger chairlift being installed on the west peak will provide 3,000 skiers and riders per hour with a ride from the base to the summit in under 5 and a half minutes. Construction is on schedule and Westside Six is anticipated to open early in the 2018/2019 season.
Windham Mountain Resort is proud to be the first resort in New York State to implement RFID lift access. The “Axess” radio-frequency identification technology will eliminate the need for guests to present their lift ticket or season pass to a lift attendant prior to loading all base area lifts. RFID Cards can be reloaded via a home computer or smartphone, and can be used season after season.
Snowmaking continues to become more efficient with nearly 100 automated snow guns being installed on Whistler, What Terrain Park (previously Assembly Line), Lower Wipeout, and Upper Wraparound.
Over two miles of new snowmaking pipe on Whiteway, Wraparound, Wilbur and Way To Go will also contribute to the resort’s ability to make large quantities of high quality snow in shorter amounts of time. A new PistenBully 400 Snowcat is being added to the grooming fleet. The high-performance machine complies with Tier 4 of the emissions standards set forth by the EPA, making it the most efficient engine available.
At the Winwood Inn, a new pool was built in the spring of 2018 and enjoyed by lodging guests, Windham Country Club members, and local pool members all summer long. The pool compliments a long list of amenities at The Winwood Inn including a fitness center, movie theater, and game room.
