As much as we adore summer in New Hampshire, winter opens new outdoor recreation opportunities. Although many people may think of Colorado or Utah when planning a ski vacation, the New Hampshire ski resorts are sometimes overlooked. These iconic slopes have been integral to the New Hampshire winter experience for generations. Thankfully, Home Team Vacation Rentals has a few properties near some of the best places to ski and snowboard while visiting the Granite State.
Gunstock Mountain Resort
Gunstock Mountain Resort, just outside of Gilford, New Hampshire, is a family-friendly ski resort that allows snowboarding. Gunstock also offers snow tubing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing overlooking beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. Their lighted ski and tubing runs ensure the fun can continue after sunset, while the full-service restaurant, Stockade Lodge, is an excellent place to fill your belly and warm up next to the double-sided fireplace. And if you’d rather grab a bite to eat on the go, their Historic Lodge offers to-go dining featuring homemade soups, baked goods, and local fare.
Wolfeboro Abenaki Ski Area
Wolfeboro Abenaki Ski Area is “America’s oldest small ski area,” so they definitely know a thing or two about hitting the slopes. The community-owned (city of Wolfeboro) New Hampshire ski resort offers affordable rates thanks to public ownership. Wolfeboro’s most significant advantage is that they boast smaller crowds and no lift lines. Wolfeboro Abenaki Ski Area is the ultimate budget-friendly skiing option.
Tenney Mountain Ski Resort
Tenney Mountain Ski Resort is a little further away from Alton and Milton than the other two, but the drive is worth it if you’re an avid skier. Tenney Mountain is perfect for all skill levels, with an elevation of 2,100 feet, a vertical drop of 1,650 feet, 48 trails, and a state-of-the-art lift system. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers will love the terrain park, purists will have a blast in the off-path skiing areas for backcountry adventures, and the kiddos will squeal with joy as they ride tubes down the mountain.
