Mountain Biking at NH ski areas


This page has not yet been updated for summer 2020. We're working on it! Check back periodically for updates.

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.


Explore the mountains by bike. Some New Hampshire ski areas offer mountain biking during the summer months, some with lift service to the summit.
