Black Mountain, New Hampshire

The Quintessential New England Ski Destination

Black Mountain, the oldest ski resort in the state, is nestled among pastures and farmlands in the quaint village of Jackson, New Hampshire.

Come and experience the magic at Black Mountain. Beginners can relax and improve their skills on Sugarbush and Black Beauty. Experts can test skills on the super steep Mr. Rew or the winding narrows of Upper Galloping Goose. Black Mountain has something to offer skiers of all ability levels.

If you don't want to ski, you will still find plenty to do. Go to Jackson for some shopping, enjoy a walk through the beautiful countryside or take part in many other activities. Or, just curl up by the fireplace at the base lodge and watch the other skiers.

So, whether it's skiing, riding or tele skiing, grab the little ones and your camera for lasting memories of winter fun.
