Just 30 minutes north of Dartmouth College, this fine small ski area is just right if you're in the area.

Dartmouth Skiway, Lyme NH 


The aptly-named Dartmouth Skiway is a satisfying small ski area just east of Lyme NH, 14 miles (23 km, 1/2 hour) northeast of Dartmouth College and Hanover NH (map).

If you're in the area, the 968-foot vertical drop from a 1943-foot (592-meter) summit and 30 trails on 104 skiable acres spread over two mountains provide satisfying skiing and snowboarding.

The two facing ski slopes are at the head of a narrow valley that retains its snow even when the countryside at large may have little. The Skiway's snowmaking ability, covering about 70% of the trails, means that if temperatures are wintry, there will be snow and a good ski/snowboard experience here.

Four lifts take you up the slopes: quad, double, J-bar and a conveyor for beginners.

Of course there's a ski school and ski patrol.

Dartmouth Skiway, Lyme Center NH

The pretty town of Lyme Center, 3.4 miles (5.5 km) northwest of the Dartmouth Skiway, is a real, traditional New England town with its white high-steepled church, town green, and country inn.

To stay the night, look at the hotels in Hanover and vicinity. More...
