Ski Resorts in New Hampshire
Skiing in New Hampshire is like the prodigal son returning to his homelandalpine and cross-country skiing has been part of the Granite State for over a century. New Hampshire was the first place to open a ski school, it hosts one of the continents most-loved backcountry slope (AKA: Tuckermans Ravine), and Cannon Resorts skiing museum offers an illuminating glimpse into the sports pastNew Hampshire has even declared skiing to be the official state sport! But dont mistake this historic legacy to imply that the conditions and amenities are in any way antiquated. New Hampshire has it all, from old school family-run mountains to fully developed resorts. Waterville Valley has hosted a number of World Cup races and is well suited for intermediate skiers; Cannon Mountain and Mount Sunapee are owned by the state and retain a backcountry feel with lift-service convenience; Bretton Woods excels at family skiing; Loon Mountain offers copious lodging options; and Cranmore has been in operation for over 60 years. A good handful of resorts have also entered into an alliance, making inter-resort travel a wonderful way to sample the variety of ski conditions.
