Skiing in NH

It is not called SKI 93 for nothing!  The mountains of New Hampshire have something for everyone – beautiful groomed terrain (Bretton Woods and Mt. Sunapee frequently win this accolade), natural snow conditions (be sure to check out Cannon Mountain after a good snow fall), excellent learn to ski programs and more.

There are mountains of all levels spread across the state – from first timers trying out McIntyre Ski Area in Manchester to Tuckerman’s Ravine, where experts (and others) hike up and ski down this challenging and avalanche prone slope on Mt. Washington well into the spring.

For many, Tuckerman’s Ravine offers some of the most challenging backcountry skiing anywhere.

Cross-Country Skiing

Below are some general sites for locating cross country skiing near you.  There are so many places to cross country ski that it is difficult to create a statewide list.  The SKI NH list below is the most comprehensive, however, hard core x-country skiers know all kinds of tracks out there that are groomed by snowmobiles or other skiers on which you can quickly disappear into a white silence.

SKI NH includes a section with links to 19 cross country ski areas and other resources.
