Ski Bretton Woods - New Hampshire's Largest Ski Area

Visit Bretton Woods, New Hampshire's largest ski area with 464 acres of skiing and snowboarding on 63 trails and 35 glades! Ten lifts, including the new Bretton Woods Skyway 8-Passenger Gondola and four high-speed quads, make your ride up the mountain almost as fun as the ride down. If there's snow falling, chances are we've got it - or we can make it with snow-making on 92% of our trails. And, because you'll want to stay on our slopes until after dark, we also offer night skiing and riding.

It's A Hat Trick! We are pleased to announce Bretton Woods has been recognized by SKI Magazine readers as #1 for Snow, Grooming & Scenery in the EAST.  Thanks to all our loyal fans, and Go BW!

As if those accolades weren't enough, we are very pleased to announce that Condé Nast Traveler readers have chosen Bretton Woods as the #12 Ski Resort in the WORLD and #6 Ski Resort in the U.S. and Canada! We would like to thank “the world’s best travel readers” for recognizing this special place as one of the best; we can’t wait to share it with generations to come.
