New Hampshire is bordered on almost all sides by famous winter sports destinations in North America. It has Vermont on the West, Maine in the East, and Quebec on the North. The ski areas of New Hampshire are relatively smaller than that of its neighbors, given that, New Hampshire is among the 10 smallest states in the US. But New Hampshire's size does not hinder its being filled – overflowing, even – with year round activities for tourists.
New Hampshire is home to magnificent mountains that are best for visits and outdoor activities regardless of the season. For example, New Hampshire's signature White Mountain is not only best for hiking and camping in the summer but is also home to superb ski, snowboarding and other winter sports facilities.
Two of the finest and most frequented ski resorts in New Hampshire are Loon Mountain and Waterville Valley.
The Loon Mountain Ski Resort is nestled in the majestic White Mountains National Forest in Lincoln, New England. Loon Mountain is known as one of New England's largest vertical drops at 2,100 feet and for being one of the premiere destinations for year round adventures. However, it is more popular as a winter destination, with its powder fine snow and superb snow sport facilities. The Loon Mountain Ski Resort has a total of 44 trails that measures 19.4 miles, and is serviced by 10 lifts including 1 gondola. Winter guests can enjoy a variety of activities at the Loon Mountain, including skiing, snowboarding, skating, snowtubing, and cross-country skiing. The superior snow conditions at the mountain are made even better by the giant snow making and snow grooming machines that the resort management has provided to provide optimum snow adventure fun to each guest.
The 500-acre Waterville Valley Ski Resort offers 259 acres of skiable terrain but it doesn't run low on fun. The mountain has a vertical drop of 2,020 feet and its longest run stretches up to 3 miles. It has a total of 52 trails, 60% of which is dedicated to Intermediate skiers. This does not mean, however, that the beginners and advanced skiers would not enjoy Waterville Valley. Even first time skiers will find their place here in this family friendly ski resort with Waterville Valley's ski lesson offers from expert skiers. The resort is serviced by a total of 12 lifts including 2 high speed quads.
