White Mountains, New Hampshire
New Hampshire is home to the White Mountains, ancient land of native American tribes, site of the first recorded alien abduction (Betty and Barney Hill, 1961) and location of five of the most fun ski areas you’ll ever have visited.
If you’re a skier or boarder looking for a change from the European scence, New Hampshire’s White Mountains are a dream. Plenty of runs for all levels of ability across Loon, Canon, Waterville and Wildcat mountains and lots of great entertainment off piste too.
The best way to plan this ski holiday is to hire a car at Boston airport and drive i93 all the way up into the White Mountains. Your ski pass covers all five resorts and a car is essential for getting between them all. Talk to Miles in the New Hampshire Ski Group to find out more.
Cannon Mountain is situated in the middle of Franconia Notch State Park and it has a justifiable reputation as challenging but the Tuckerbrook Family Learning Centre is one of the best learning areas around. Find out more here.
We think Wildcat offers some of the most fun skiing in New Hampshire with trails that wind and twist their way across the face of the mountain and with the new express quad that whisks you back up to the top in 6 minutes you can do this all day! Find out more here.
Cranmore is the only mountain we didn’t experience first hand but this resort has a 70 years reputation of providing the best value skiing in New Hampshire and with over $6 million of investment in improvements over the past year alone there’s never been a better time to try it.
We stayed at The Indian Head Resort, one of the more famous ski lodges in the area. The resort is only minutes from Loon Mountain and features indoor and outdoor heated pools, game room, saunas, and the Thunderbird lounge which is open for drinks and snacks all day. All the rooms also feature 50″ plasma screen TVs with HDTV and free HBO.
