Ski Area Holiday Events
Across the state NH's ski areas celebrate the holidays.

Mother Nature hasn't brought much snow yet this season but ski area operators have still been able to make snow and many NH ski areas' lifts are running, albeit with fewer trails. During the holidays ski areas will be offering plenty of activities for all ages - including many attractions traditionally available in the summer and fall months. Families won't be disappointed!
