Default any ski discount deals out there?

Wondering if there are any ski discount deals at NH mountains that you can pass along to me? I will be skiing in March in NH and wanted to try out different mtns within easy driving distant of the lakes with a particular interest in Cannon, Waterville Valley, Loon and Attitash. Any info on deals would be greatly appreciated.

Default SKINH.com

is a great place to start to find discounts. Go to the resorts websites for more deals. Often times the Conway Chamber of Commerce have ski and stay deals.

When skiing Gunstock find a season pass holder. You may be able to get a half price ticket. Many ski areas have a half price buddy ticket for pass holders.

Skiing been awesome this year. Enjoy!

Default Really, free skiing for over 65 crowd?

I have done some more research and see some NH areas give significant breaks but I haven't turned up ski areas that give free skiing to NH resident age 65 or above. Can you provide additional info?

If you have never been to Wildcat before, you might want to add it to your list, especially since you'll be skiing in March, The view across Pinkham Notch into Tuckermans Ravine on a spring day is absolutely world class ...and the terrain is almost as good as Cannon's

Agree the view from Wildcat is the best in NH. And I think that the terrain is better than Cannon in the sense of a wider choice.

Default ... $30/vehicle/year...most cars can hold 4-5 people

If you want to try cross country skiing, here's a super steal of a deal coming from the U. S. Forest Service. For $5/vehicle/day cash in the steel box, or 30-dollars/vehicle/year you get a windshield parking sticker good for one year to park at all the many different multiple use trails and hiking trails in the White Mountain National Forest; hiking, xc skiing, bicycling, but no motorized vehicles ($250-first time fine).

In the north end of Waterville Valley, you park at the WMNF Depot Camp parking lot and there's 7-miles of muiti use trails which become cross country ski trails in the winter, tracked by skier use and sometimes by the WV grooming machines.

These are situated immediately next to the 70-kilometers of groomed and tracked WV xc trails which cost about 21-dollars/day/person.

The xc trails in the rolling woods are located at the bottom of the downhill ski area, and due to the big winds, there are many days when the main ski www.waterville.com/cams/ 4-seater chairlift at Waterville Valley is closed due to wind. Waterville Valley is also sometimes called 'Windyville Valley.' So, when it's too windy for downhill skiing, and the lift is closed, the cross country trails in the forest are a lot more protected from the wind
and something to do as a second choice.

$87: WV downhill, weekends and holiday chairlift price verses $5/vehicle/day for 7-miles xc trails which give you a good view of the Windyville Valley.

Correct. Totally free weekdays and if you want a season pass so you dont have to go to the ticket window every time just $39. Cant find a better deal than that anywhere.

Default NH age-65: Ski Cannon Free till You Die!

NH age-65: Ski Cannon Free till You Die!


ooopsie....looks like I said that twice?


Say....they should put that on the license plates, ... or maybe just make it a bumper sticker!


Google this: 'Mayor' of Cannon Mountain: At the lift for more than 30 years, Conway Daily Sun, January 10, 2018, by Marty Basch


And another thing, Cannon has real, natural wood logs burning in their main lodge fireplace, as opposed to the propane, fake logs like at Waterville Valley!

$87 for a Waterville Valley lift ticket, and what do you get .... fake logs?

That would be my friend Allan Girard. He's been in that lift shack for a loooong time. But I have him beat at Cannon by 15 years. Call me the governor.
