There’s still time to ski or ride at New Hampshire’s ski areas, but you should head out soon. The state’s downhill and Nordic ski areas will wrap up the season in April and are offering spring ski deals and hosting events during these final days.
It was a successful year for New Hampshire’s ski industry, with thousands of visitors from across the region coming to the state to hit the slopes and enjoy the many activities offered off the mountain and après ski.
“We go into April with truly impressive end of season skiing right now because so many trails are still open with great coverage,” said Jessyca Keeler, executive director, Ski NH. “Beyond the high percentage of trails that will be open this weekend, the forecast is calling for more snow throughout the state, which should make for some awesome spring skiing this weekend and over the next couple of weekends.”
A number of destinations will remain open into April, thanks in part to a cold blast and big snowfall this March. In fact, currently alpine areas are skiing on 55-90 percent of their terrain, and open Nordic areas are between 40 to over 90 percent open. With the expected snow tomorrow, those figures could go up to nearly 100 percent.
The last day to ski at one of Ski NH’s member ski areas is expected to be Patriot’s Day, Monday, April 17, when Bretton Woods officially closes for the season.
Special events and pricing on lift tickets will take place throughout the spring season, including 2-for-$75 (or one for $49) lift tickets at Cannon and $29 lift tickets at Bretton Woods. Loon is offering $45 lift tickets on Sunday afternoons and on Friday, March 31, Waterville Valley hosts their annual $1 “April Fools” lift tickets for all skiers.
