Logo   Whaleback Ski Area, Enfield NH
Small, steep and fun, Whaleback Ski Area is eminently uncrowded, accessible and inexpensive.



Whaleback Ski Area couldn't be more easily accessible, being right next to Interstate 89 (Exit 16) southeast of Lebanon NH (map).

You can't miss seeing the ski area from the highway.

Because Whaleback offers ski and snowboard rentals and lessons, it's fun to imagine a family speeding along the highway, doing a double-take when they see happy people zooming down the steep slopes, taking the exit, and suiting up for a few runs to break their trip.

"Your local ski area," as it calls itself, Whaleback sits on 85 acres boasting an 1800-foot (549-meter) summit with 30 trails, nearly 40% of them Intermediate. A chair lift gets you up there (with a magic carpet for beginners).

There's a terrain park for snowboarders, all in a compact, easily-negotiable area.

A cafeteria and pub provide sustinence.
