Logo   Black Mountain Skiing, Jackson NH
Jackson NH is famous for its cross-country ski trails. Just outside Jackson is a nice small downhill ski resort to satisfy the craving for speed and slope: Black Mountain.



Small, informal, homey even, Black Mountain Ski Resort is just what Jackson NH needs: a place to have some downhill fun in between (or instead of) the cross-country and inn-to-inn ski treks.

Black Mountain's modest vertical drop of 1100 feet (335 meters) from a 3303-foot (1007-meter) summit has 40 trails (13 novice, 14 intermediate, 13 expert) served by four lifts (triple, double, platter pull, J-bar).

Facilities are simple but adequate, with all the expected services—lessons, child care, rentals, food and drink—and lift ticket prices are refreshingly low: about half that of more elaborate ski areas.

Black Mountain is easy to get to, easy to use and easy to like.

Attitash, Cranmore and Wildcat ski areas are only a short drive away, should you want more of a challenge from the pleasant, un-hassled skiing at Black Mountain.

For lodgings, there are the country inns of Jackson, and the inns, motels and hotels of Glen, Bartlett and North Conway:
