West Lake Water Project
$30 million raised from 60 investors
Project status: completed

The West Lake Water Project was the largest snowmaking project ever completed at Mount Snow.  Water storage and pumping capacity for snowmaking is critical for a ski area.  Prior to the West Lake project,  Mount Snow had 20 million gallons of available water storage and a pumping capacity of 6,000 gallons per minute.  Once completed, the West Lake Project provided 120 million gallons of water storage for snowmaking and a pumping capacity of 10,000 gallons per minute. This increased current water storage capacity by six times and provides enough water for 100% snowmaking at Mount Snow.

Other project components included three pump houses, a water intake structure in a stream and more than 22 miles of pipeline.  Construction on the project started in February 2015 and it was completed in time for the 2017-2018 ski season.  As a result of the West Lake Water Project, Mount Snow opened for skiing on November 11, 2017 -- one of the earliest openings in its history.

This project was in the Vermont Regional Center
