Top 10 Lost Ski Sites In New Hampshire

Do you ski or snowboard? Do you find yourself going to the same crowded slopes all winter long? Do you need a change? If you said yes to any of these questions, then you need to discover (or rediscover) New Hampshire's 175 lost ski areas. The New England Lost Ski Areas Project (NELSAP) founded by Jeremy Davis has dedicated a website to sharing information, pictures, and brochures for those long lost ski spots. Even Concord, NHPR's hometown, has some lost gems at Russel's Pond and Snow Pond. Chances are, there's a hidden ski slope near year.

Here is Jeremy's list of the top 10 lost ski sites in New Hampshire:

  1. Thorn Mountain, Jackson
  2. Mount Whitter, West Ossipee
  3. Tyrol, Jackson
  4. Frontenac, Plymouth
  5. Brookline, Brookline
  6. Highlands, Northfield (no alpine skiing but is open as Mountain Bike Park)
  7. Moose Mountain, Brookfield
  8. Temple Mountain, Temple
  9. King Ridge, Sutton
  10. Tenney Mountain, Plymouth
