Logo   Mount Sunapee Ski Resort, NH
A state park ski area with sunny slopes and good services. Best of all, it's close to New England's major cities.



Mount Sunapee Ski Resort in Newbury NH is accessible, being just about the closest ski area of its size and scope to Boston MA (102 miles/164 km northwest, 2 hours) and Hartford CT (146 miles/235 km north, 1-3/4 hours)(map).

It's of moderate size, with 65 trails (17 novice, 32 intermediate, 16 expert) down a vertical drop of 1510 feet (460 meters), served by 10 lifts including three quads (one high-speed).

The South Peak learners area is a spacious area separate from the main slope, which saves beginners, both skiers and snowboard riders, from being endangered by faster skiers racing by—or into—them.

Snowmaking is important here, with 80% of the resort's trails within range of the snow guns.

Snowboarders get three terrain parks, a freeride zone, half-pipe, race arena, and a protected area for learners.

Plenty of ski lessons and classes, kids' programs and child care (1 to 5 years), and equipment rentals.

Lodgings are in nearby towns.
