After years of planning and permitting, the Mount Snow West Lake Project is underway, with a formal groundbreaking to take place on Friday, May 29. Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin is expected to be on hand.

Originally announced by Peak Resorts in 2007, clearing for the 12 acre pond took place over the winter of 2014-15. With a capacity of 120 million gallons, West Lake will be a 600% improvement over Mount Snow's current 20 million gallon snowmaking water storage. According to the Deerfield Valley News in 2009, Mount Snow will relinquish its water rights to Haystack's Mirror Lake once West Lake goes online.

The EB-5 funded project is expected to be completed for the 2016-17 season.
