They don’t call them the White Mountains for nothing. 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 here. New Hampshire’s 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 and Loon and Waterville Valley along SKI 93. 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, and the Mount Washington Hotel at Bretton Woods. Or you can hike and ski Tuckerman Ravine on The Mount in spring, some of the steepest backcountry skiing in the country reached by a 3-mile hike.
