Mount Sunapee New Hampshire Skiing

Mount Sunapee is one of New Hampshire’s best places for learning ski families, since 1948. Its a pretty mountain with a beautiful lake below, in southern New Hampshire, conveniently off I93 and 89, not far from the pretty towns of New London and Newbury. Under management and state lease by the Mueller family since 1988, along with Vermont sister resort Okemo, Sunapee puts extra effort into snowmaking, new lifts and attentive family learn to ski and ride services. Though Sunapee is far from big, every family member will find their kind of terrain, from groomed cruisers, to glades or moguls to a very mellow separate beginner area with 13 designated trails. Sunapee also offer great lift ticket deals, so its ideal for a ski day trip.

Sunapee's Children's Center is state of the art for learning kids (and anxious parents).The four terrain parks and superpipe will keep teens rocking on their boards, or hitting Sunapee's Big Air Bag. The panoramic views of Lake Sunapee from Mt Sunapee's summit are fabulous. Expansion of Mount Sunapee's West Bowl has been approved the State of NH, for 4 new ski trails on 56 acres, a new quad lift, lodge and magic carpet at the new West base area to be developed. Much of Sunapee's ski terrain is in the Mount Sunapee State Forest. Historically,
Mount Sunapee opened
in 1948 with a 3,300' North Peak single chair, three trails, two rope tows and the North Peak Lodge.
