Logo   Bretton Woods Ski Resort, NH
With dramatic views of Mount Washington from the ski slopes, and one-of-a-kind lodgings and sights nearby, Bretton Woods is among New Hampshire's most popular ski areas.



Boasting that it is "New Hampshire's largest ski area," Bretton Woods Mountain Resort, on US Route 302 in Twin Mountain NH (map), also boasts great snow quality and often-favorable weather.

The vertical drop of 1500 feet (457 meters) has 101 trails (31 novice, 42 intermediate, 28 expert) on two interconnected mountain peaks served by 9 lifts, including five quads. Two of the lifts serve five night skiing trails.

Snowmaking covers 92% of the slopes. Snowboarders get their own terrain park with rails and a fun box, and there's a tubing hill as well.

Lots of ski lessons and kids' programs, with child care for kids from two months to 5 years.

The grand old Mount Washington Hotel is just down the road, as are several hotels, inns, and condominium complexes.

The Mount Washington Cog Railway, with its own ski runs along the railroad right-of-way, is just a short drive away.

The Bretton Woods Monetary Conference of 1944, officials from 44 countries meeting at the Mount Washington Hotel , established the World Bank and the global monetary system for post-World War II, making the name "Bretton Woods" world famous.
