Bretton Woods — New Hampshire’s largest ski area, Bretton Woods gets high marks for its typically sublime weather conditions, which are marked by little wind and lots of snow, counting more than 200 inches annually. Combine that snowfall with snowmaking capacity for 92 percent of the resort for fluffy conditions that make it popular for those learning the ropes on the slopes (and who may be prone to a tumble or two). Four terrain parks can be accessed from different parts of the mountain. In late 2008, a canopy tour also debuted in the region, with elevated suspension bridges and zip-lines descending some 1,000 feet now open to the public year-round. Whether you visit for the slopes or the thrills, our Bretton Woods Travel Guide details the top insider tips. Note that ski season in Bretton Woods stretches from early November to mid-April.

Why Go

For the most trails in all of New Hampshire, ample snowfalls, and plenty of outlets for adventure seekers.
