Scenic Chairlift Rides

Loon Mt Sunset Gondola

Be sure to "know before you go". As New Hampshire’s stay-at-home guidelines are relaxed and summer attractions begin to open, it’s important for guests and visitors to be aware that businesses are modifying operations for the summer in accordance with guidance set by the State of New Hampshire. We recommend that you learn about these changes as part of your planning process, and invite you to visit Ski NH’s COVID-19 Consumer Resource Page to learn more. By being educated and working together, we can keep each other safe and provide more opportunities for all to get out and enjoy all that New Hampshire has to offer.

The views from the top of a mountain are nothing but spectacular in New Hampshire and NH ski areas offer a great way to get to the summit without the work. Just get on a chairlift, gondola or tram and enjoy the beauty of the mountains on your ride up without breaking a sweat.
