Tenney Mountain Resort, NH Announces Re-opening


Recommended Posts

After being offline since 2010, Tenney Mountain, NH located just outside the town of Plymouth, has announced that they expect to be reopen for skiing on Thursday. The mountain that had seen its fair share of ups and downs in the past decades, is coming back to life thanks to its current ownership group led by Michael Bouchard, that had purchased the property back in 2014-15. Tenney has been operating their tubing park for a couple of weeks now , served by a platter pull lift. The upcoming opening will be limited to intermediate/expert skiers on natural snow. 

Tenney Mountain, opened in 1960, as a surface lift area, had a few of closings through the late 80's, early 90's leading up to its final closing in 2010. There has been a lot of work that has been put into bringing back the mountain to life. Repairs to a neglected snowmaking system, land erosion on ski trails, trimming back trails, renovations to the chalet, and bringing the lifts to current standards have been done over the past 4 or so years. It has been a long time coming but finally Tenney is ready for a soft opening for this year and hopefully a full on opening for 2018-19. I wish all the best to the current ownership in bringing this mountain out of her long slumber.

I have never skied Tenney but I really want to. 2 years ago I stopped by on the way home from a summer trip to Maine and met Michael and checked out the place. The main mountain is more for the Intermediate and Expert skier by looking at the trail map. They do have a platter/poma lift for a beginner area. They have a double chair to the summit and a triple chair serving another sector.

I have been really interested in this project and had been following their Facebook Page since I found out about it. Their video updates that they posted are interesting and it is almost like a video documentary on what is involved in bringing back to life a closed and neglected ski area. They had to do a lot of work on the trails because of the erosion from the past number of years. A lot of tree trimming and bush hogging to reopen some of the trails that grew back in.

I had planned a trip to Tenney this winter for their reopening.but it looks like I won't be able to do it. Tenney is definitely on my radar for next season.

It’s finally happening. Tenney Mountain is ready to reopen tomorrow. Back on this day in 2010, Tenney abruptly shut its doors. Tomorrow, Tenney will finally get the chance to complete that 2010 ski season..........albeit 8 years later. 

I would like to congratulate Michael Bouchard and his Team on all their hard work and effort to bring back Tenney Mountain and wish them all the best in the future.

If anyone is interested in finding out more on Tenney Mountain, go to their Facebook Page, or go to their website www.skitenney.com 

Here is their video posted on Tenney’s Facebook Page concerning the reopening.
