From the Balsams in the far north to Granite Gorge in the south, New Hampshire boasts over 30 ski resorts. The majority are clustered in the White Mountains, which is home to the highest peak in the Northeastern United States: the mighty Mount Washington.
Accommodations range just as much as the mountains; from the grand old Omni Mount Washington Hotel, with its luxurious spa and dining, to the cozy Kearsarge Inn, which has in-room fireplaces and Jacuzzis, there are lodgings for every budget and every type. Ski New Hampshire offers information on most of the state’s ski resorts, but here are five tried and tested spots to hit.
1. Bretton Woods, White Mountain National Forest; 2. Franconia Notch State Park, Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway & Ski Area, New England Ski Museum; 3. Cranmore Mountain Resort; 4. Jackson Ski Touring Foundation; 5. Loon Mountain Resort.
