Ski Patrol Report, "Yesterday was the third deepest day on this epic season," and that over 2 feet fell on the upper mountain!
Ski NH Newsletter
Once again it's been a roller coaster ride with the weather. After some snow last week, we saw rain over the past day or two, and now they're calling for mountain snow again during this week.
The good news is the ski areas still have a deep base of snow on the trails thanks to a winter of plentiful snowmaking. Some ski areas will be closing over the next few weeks, with others looking to stay open as late as May 1! Sooo, hopefully you can get out for a few days of spring skiing.
Along with the warm weather, this is the time of year you start to find quiet slopes, and it will cost you alot less money to enjoy them! Check out our Great Deals page for the newest lift ticket deals from around the Granite State.
Many areas are also offering deals on next years season passes, so take a few minutes and check with your favorite area to see if they are offering you a deal.
