Skiing just so happens to be the official state sport for New Hampshire, as such, you know we take pride in offering some of the best skiing in New England. On average, southern New Hampshire usually gets around 60 inches of snow during the winter and central New Hampshire gets about 85.  Of course, the mountains get a lot more. Far northern New Hampshire, in the Great North Woods, comes in with the statewide snow jackpot.  In fact, the topography of that region in combination with orographic lifting yields annual snowfalls of upwards of 140 to 200 inches of snow!  New Hampshire ski resorts are constantly working to improve trails and snowmaking in their efforts to offer you the very best.
