Mount Washington Observatory Welcomes New Director of Summit Operations: Mount Washington Observatory will celebrate a major changing of the guard, as thirty-three year Observatory veteran Ken Rancourt will retire in September. The longtime director of the organization’s mountaintop operations will be succeeded by meteorologist Cyrena-Marie Briedé of Brighton, Colorado, who is already on site and training with Rancourt. “The Director of Summit Operations position is one of the most crucial-and challenging-positions at the Observatory,” notes Observatory Executive Director Scot Henley. “This person is responsible for the safety of our scientists, the technological infrastructure of our organization, mountain transportation, logistical support, and the effective operation of our weather station, situated in one of the world’s most extreme places.” Fortunately, the Observatory has found Briedé, an accomplished scientist and researcher who has managed remote sites from the mountains of Colorado to the Alaskan subarctic. Most recently employed at an air quality monitoring and environmental management contractor in Englewood, Colorado.

Visit the Mt Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center in North Conway Village at 11am or 2pm and tune into the live video conference with meteorologists at the summit (upon request).  Admission to the Weather Discovery Center is free (donations gladly accepted).  If you’ve got a weather buff in the family, you’ll find plenty of fabulous gifts in the gift shop here too.

New, Free Learning Area, Snowmaking & Relocated Terrain Park Highlight “What’s New” for the 2012/13 Winter Season at Attitash Mountain Resort & Wildcat Mountain

New learning terrain for the upcoming season, including two new lower-mountain beginner trails, is being added at Attitash Mountain Resort at the Bear Peak base area. Most notable about this new terrain, including the addition of a renovated, handle tow, surface lift to be installed near to it, is that Attitash will make this learning area and lift available for free to new skiers. More than $50,000 will be invested into creating the trails, adding snowmaking enhancements, renovating and installing the new free surface lift at Bear Peak, and also relocating the conveyor belt surface lift on the Attitash side to better enhance the experience for novice skiers and snowboarders using the learning slope there. New rental equipment has also been purchased to enhance the beginners’ experience.  Additional on-mountain improvements for the 2012/2013 season include Attitash Mountain Resort relocating its larger terrain park to Bear Peak. The move will also allow for expanded intermediate terrain on the Attitash side opening up Thad’s Choice for all skiers and snowboarders.

Wildcat Mountain, already well-known as an expert skier’s mountain, is adding a new $70,000 conveyor belt surface lift. “The legend of Wildcat Mountain is that it’s a super, challenging mountain,” said Josh Boyd, General Manager of Wildcat Mountain. Wildcat Mountain has also continued for a second year to work closely with the U.S. Forest Service to improve and maintain the approved glade and tree skiing areas during the off-season.

Additionally, Peak Resorts, owner of Attitash and Wildcat, has also committed over $500,000 in snowmaking improvements and hardware for both ski areas. A total of 101 tower guns will be installed at the two resorts.

Stay tuned to next month’s E-Traveler for updates on what’s new at other ski resorts in Mt Washington Valley.
