NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A small ski slope for learners and beginners could be coming to Nashua.

The Nashua Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/2gzbEBT) the city’s Planning Board approved a proposal for a 60,000-square-foot ski area at the Gateway Hills development. The project still needs approval from the Board of Alderman and an opening date is not set.

Engineers for the project say it would be a “learning slope,” about 300 feet tall with a 38- to 40-foot elevation drop. Developers want the slope to be open during evenings on the weeknights and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. It would be lit for night skiing. Skiers would get to the top of the hill on a conveyor belt lift.
