Windham Mountain Club Upgrades

The public ski slope plans to upgrade its ski lifts and snowmaking capabilities over the next few years including a full mechanical upgrade to its East Side Express ski lift (G) and adding more automated snowmaking that will provide more snow coverage in less time. The mountain also plans to introduce a new "culinary program", that will include a new food court and a Mediterranean kitchen concept in the base lodge.
