Area resort plans expansion

WEST DOVER -- A 120-million-gallon water storage pond for snowmaking and a new 36,000-square-foot base lodge for skier services are two of the projects Mount Snow will fund through EB-5, an immigrant investor program. The projects, newly approved under the Vermont EB-5 Regional Center, total $52 million in investments.

The West Lake Project will increase Mount Snow’s current snowmaking water storage by nearly 500 percent. This increase in available water will allow Mount Snow to open more trails early in the season and recover more quickly from inclement weather. It will also bring existing water withdrawals into compliance with state and federal regulatory standards. Additional project components include three pump houses, pipelines, a new magic carpet lift and other snowmaking improvements.
