Logo   Granite Gorge Ski Area, Roxbury NH
A small, friendly, youth-oriented ski area near Keene in southwestern New Hampshire.


Granite Gorge is a small ski area on NH Route 9, 5.5 miles (9 km) northeast of Keene NH (map). Though closed for several years in the 1970s, it is again open and thriving, with a new base lodge and other new facilities.

Located on the north face of Pinnacle Mountain, the trails are protected from the wind and hold snow well.

The ski area on 55 acres of skiable terrain with a 525-foot (160-meter) vertical drop from the 1703-foot (519-meter) summit of Spruce Peak.

Four lifts, including the double-chair Pinnacle Express to the summit, serve 20 trails. Snowmaking covers about 25% of the area, and lighting allows night skiing, snowboarding and tubing.

The snowboard terrain parks are top-to-bottom. 12 miles of cross-country ski trails are less adventurous, but equally statisfying.

All in all, it's a fine small "gateway" mountain for first-timers, learners, and those out for some easy fun.
