New Hampshire Skiing

    New Hampshire is the center of New England's snow country that extends from Vermont to Maine. New Hamphire is the home of White Mountains. Numerous ski resorts are located in White Mountains. They are a favorite skiing playground for many kids, teens, and adults from New England and beyond.

The highest point of White Mountains is Mount Washinton - 6,288 feet. It is the highest point of the US Northeast and is notoriously known for its worst weather in the world. See my pictures of Mount Washington and other New Hampshire scenery.

All New Hampshire ski resorts are small but the vertical drop for a few of them is a little bit more than 2000 feet, which is not bad at all given that you usally can drop these 2000 feet or so in a single run. Consider also that most of the resorts there have hi-speed quads. Due to their size, New Hampshire resorts are suited best for shorter skiing trips. Because of the proximity to the Boston metropolitan area, these resorts could be quite crowded on holidays and weekends, especially when the weather is nice.

The weather in the region is a special topic. It is one of the most popular conversational topics among locals. It constantly changes throughout the winter from snow to rain, to freezing cold, to beautiful sunny skies. Due to this kind of weather, please expect hardpack or icy conditions on the slopes. The good thing about these conditions is that if you can ski in New England, you can ski anywhere. Think of New Hampshire's native Bode Miller

Aerial Previews allow you to watch New Hampshire ski resorts from the air, from the height of a chairlift. Each preview is a slide show exhibiting several photos taken from one lift.
