Windham Mountain plans for warmer future
Michael Ryan in the Mountain Eagle looks at Windham Mountain's new master plan, and while he doesn't quote anything in the plan about climate change, clearly the winter resort is thinking about warming. A multi-use amphitheater is included in the plan, part of what Kate Sullivan, the director of marketing and communications for the resort, says is, “our increased focus on year-round activities.” In recent years, Windham Mountain has seen some heavy snow, but also warmer winter temperatures that hinder snow-making. The plan also proposes a new hotel, and 58 new townhouses and 16 new single-family homes. All of it must be approved by Windham Planning Board, and several other agencies, so the plan is very tentative, but the resort would like to begin building in 2024.
