Overview

The Bretton Woods Ski Resort is New Hampshire's largest ski area boasting 464 acres of the best downhill skiing and lessons around. For multiple years in a row, Bretton Woods has been named #1 in the East for best grooming lifts, and #2 Top Overall Ski Resort by Ski Magazine in 2022/2023 season. Our Skyway Gondola passes breathtaking views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range on the way up to the summit’s impressive Rosebrook Lodge and the start to an amazing day on the slopes. The resort is home to an extensive trail system connected by updated chairlifts and snow making infrastructure, with snow-making capabilities on 92% of terrain.

Comprised of a 200-guest room historic grand hotel, a 34-guest room country inn, and a 50- room contemporary lodge all in Bretton Woods. One- to five-bedroom townhomes also available.

Inside Scoop

Bretton Woods Ski Area and the Omni Mount Washington Hotel are centrally located in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Dining varies from four-course, elegant dining to several options for a more family-friendly casual experience, with dozens of off-site options nearby. The 1,200 acre resort is surrounded by 18,000 square acres of White Mountain National Forest.

Our winter activities range from skiing and snowboarding to Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, and sleigh rides. For those seeking a little more adventure, we offer year-round canopy tours where you and your friends or family can fly high above the forest with a view of the incredible Presidential Range and Mount Washington.
