New Hampshire Skiing

They are called the White Mountains for a reason. This is the state that has declared “skiing “as its “official sport of winter.” New Hampshire has 18 alpine resorts, so there is truly something for every type of skier and rider, and families are definitely a priority in the Granite State. New Hampshire’s ski resorts are among the most accessible and affordable in North America, from Gunstock to North Conway’s Cranmore, Black, Wildcat and Attitash to Mount Washington’s Bretton Woods.  Loon and Waterville Valley are especially easy to reach along SKI 93, with Cannon just a bit further north. Most areas are a short distance from major interstates, and all of New Hampshire’s ski areas offer good values for families heading to the slopes.

What’s most special about New Hampshire is the scenery, especially Wildcat and Cannon. The views from New Hampshire’s ski-able summits are some of the finest in New England. Cannon Mountain’s aerial tram, the first in North America in 1938, is spectacular. In fact, New Hampshire‘s Mount Washington is the highest summit in the Northeastern U.S. at 6,288’ – a stunning landmark visible from most of the state’s great ski areas, particularly Bretton Woods and The Mount Washington Resort Hotel. You can ride the Cog Railway and winter and ski down, or you can hike and ski Tuckerman Ravine on Washington in spring, some of the steepest backcountry skiing in the country reached by a 3-mile hike.
