Ski Bretton Woods - New Hampshire's Largest Ski Area
Think Snow, and Plan Ahead
Bretton Woods is open for skiing & riding at Bretton Woods for the 2020-21 winter season! Our snowmaking team has been hard at work and will continue to make snow and open more terrain as the weather permits. As we know, the Nordic Center is less predictable, and we will get the trail system open as soon as Mother Nature allows. Please note, our Alpine and Nordic snow reports will be your go-to resource for open terrain and lifts and any last-minute operational changes.
We have implemented some necessary changes in the way the resort will operate this season. Our policies and operating plans have been developed in accordance with the guidelines put forth by the State of New Hampshire’s Governor’s Economic Reopening Taskforce and will be reevaluated frequently. Be sure to check the latest guidelines prior to each visit. Certain facilities, services and programs will be limited or not available this season.

To ensure compliance with policies and to optimize safety measures, we are limiting the number of guests on the slopes and in our lodges this season. Season pass holders will NOT be limited in the use of their pass nor will they be required to make a reservation for the days they want to visit. If you do not have a season pass, you must purchase your lift tickets online BEFORE visiting the resort to ensure you are able to ski or ride on your preferred days. Online tickets are currently available for purchase up to 14 days in advance.
Staff and guests are required to wear a cloth face covering over their nose and mouth when on the premises of the ski resort unless they are skiing on a trail, physically distanced 6 feet or more, or eating or drinking. This includes loading, riding and unloading lifts. By visiting Bretton Woods, you voluntarily assume the risks related to possible exposure to COVID-19. Personal responsibility will be the key to making this ski season successful. Please respect your fellow skiers and riders and the employees of Bretton Woods by following the guidelines we have put forth. We are all in this together and need your help to ensure we can enjoy the sport we love for the entirety of the season.
