Technically New England consists of six states. However, the majority of our reviews are confined to where we have skied, which is pretty much every ski area in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. We love New England skiing, beautiful scenery, great learn to ski programs for the kids at most ski resorts, charming ski towns, genuine people, and fun après ski activities like tubing for the kids, or s’mores by the bonfire.
Maine is home to the two biggest ski resorts, by terrain stats Sugarloaf is #1 with 1,056 acres on one big mountain, and sister Sunday River hosts 820-acres of skiing with amazing lifts interconnecting eight mountain peaks.
The Green Mountains of Vermont feature over a dozen of New England’s finest ski mountains, with great trail character, and often quaint ski villages and resorts at the base.
The White Mountain state of New Hampshire offers 19 ski resorts and some fabulous skiing and views of Mount Washington to take your breath away. Skiing is New Hampshire’s official winter sport!
Massachusetts has skiing too, we call them feeder ski areas, or starter ski mountains, small, but with good snow making and great family learn to ski and snowboard programs.
The adage goes, if you can ski in the East you can ski anywhere. Northern New England’s ski resorts put those words into action with terrain for any ability from beginner to backcountry, rapidly changing conditions from fresh snow, to packed powder and groomed, to spring corn snow. You will find a wide range of slopeside resorts waiting to be discovered, from small picturesque villages to big ski resort towns.
