Grab your poles: Ski season is coming to Concord
The temperatures are falling and so is the snow… so wax your skis and head to the slopes around Concord, NH. Cross-country ski trails will soon be open to the public. With so many Nordic and alpine ski areas you could call Concord the skiing capital.
White Farm, Carter Hill and Beaver Meadow Golf Course are the three cross-country ski (Nordic) places around town that are open to the public. With trails for ski or ponds to skate, you can have fun with your friends and family outdoors. The trails are beginner friendly, and mostly flat.
Gear rentals are available from local stores. S&Woff Main Street is dedicated to bikes, skis and boards. Here you can find a wide range of Alpine and Nordic equipment and snowboard gear. Eastern Mountain Sportsalso has a selection of outdoor gear, clothing, equipment and accessories for sale.
A little bit out of Concord you’ll find more challenging Alpine ski mountains, like Pats Peak (20 minutes away), where your can ski after the sun goes down or visit McIntyre Ski area (25 minutes away). In the White Mountains you can have the experience of the largest ski area in the state, Bretton Woods or explore the Waterville Valley Resort, home to the 2019 skiing US Nationals! And Mt. Sunapee is just 45 minutes away.
