CONWAY, NH (February 8, 2018)—Traditionally, February is one of the top months for snowfall in New Hampshire, and this year appears to be following suit. After many ski areas in New Hampshire received close to or more than six inches of new snow earlier in the week, the storm on Wednesday, February 7 brought over a foot of snow to parts of the Granite State.
Alpine ski areas reporting:
Whaleback Mountain - 14in
Cross-country ski areas reporting:
Great Glen Trails - 13in
With school vacation weeks just on the horizon, ski areas are hopeful for continued snow, great ski conditions, and increased skier visits as a result. Special events fill the calendars at the ski areas for the upcoming winter breaks, and accompanying ski and stay packages aim to encourage longer overnight visits.
“We see a large portion of the state’s skiing and snowboarding visitors during the months of February and March. Storms like this one help to create excitement among the skiing community, and the longer days help to encourage visitors to experience other offerings after a full day of skiing, like snow tubing, zip lining, and a variety of après-ski entertainment that the resorts put on,” says Karolyn Castaldo, Ski New Hampshire’s communications and marketing manager.
