Enjoy Nordic skiing in Bretton Woods, NH


Think Snow, and Plan Ahead
To all our valued Skiers & Riders, we hope this finds you well and that you’ve found your way forward during these challenging times. We’ve all learned a lot in a few short months, and we are optimistic that the 2020-21 season will provide opportunities to enjoy our favorite winter sports once again. Our current plan is to fire up our award-winning snowmaking in early November, with the goal of opening the alpine ski area for Thanksgiving. As we know, the Nordic Center is less predictable, and we will get the trail system open as soon as Mother Nature allows. While services and building capacities could be more limited, we will work hard to make sure your days at Bretton Woods will be fulfilling and memorable.
We may be implementing pre-purchase policies for day tickets and rentals, and some of our services could be modified or not offered until we can safely do so. Be sure to stay informed by visiting prior to your visits. As we all continue to practice safety measures set forth by the CDC, industry leaders and state and local officials, including enhanced cleaning and sanitizing throughout the property and our own Omni Safe & Clean standards, we will hopefully see the end of this truly world-changing event in the near future.
If you have any remaining pre-purchased 2019-20 tickets or vouchers, we will be happy to honor them from opening day of our 2020-21 season (est. mid-November) through December 25, 2020. Simply bring your original ticket or voucher to any Bretton Woods ticket window to exchange for that day's ticket.   
All facilities and offices at the Alpine Base Lodge are closed to the public at this time. Should you need to contact us, please call 603-278-3320 or email us with your detailed inquiry. We thank you for choosing Bretton Woods and look forward to welcoming you back for our 2020-21 season. We wish you all the best during these challenging times. 
We wish you the best, and look forward to seeing you again on the slopes.
