Trail 52, a novice run parallel to Stillness, is expected to open on Saturday, according to Waterville Valley's snow report. The trail can be accessed via the existing Valley Run Quad. Snowmaking has also been conducted on Trail 53 and on top of the peak on Trail 51. The majority of the new Green Peak terrain will require significant natural snow in order open this season.

Meanwhile, construction continues on the Green Peak Triple with chair hanging reportedly taking place. Originally slated to open around Christmas, the bulk of the lift installation work is complete. The date of the load test, as well as the grand opening, has not yet been announced.

Originally a 1986 Albertsson-Stadeli installation, the lift was rebuilt with a new drive and line equipment by Doppelmayr in 2000. The Green Peak Triple has been listed at 4,380 feet long by 1,011 feet vertical and could serve up to 10 trails this winter, if natural snowfall permits.
