Area Info - NH White Mountains |

NH White Mountains Region

The mother lode for SkiNH, incorporating the 800,000 acre White Mountain National Forest and the 12-peak Presidential Range. 6,288 ft. Mount Washington is the state's highest peak and home to a year round weather station. This region and its 20+ alpine resorts have produced lustrous stars of Nordic skiing, from Tom Corcoran, 1960 US Olympic Ski Team member and founder of Waterville Valley, to Bode Miller.

Highlights: The Mount Washington Hotel and Bretton Woods resort and the Mountain View Grand Hotel are two historic grande dames here, among just 4 remaining grand NH hotels where 200 once defined the word "vacation." The Kancamagus Highway winds through Franconia Notch, breathtaking even without the "Old Man." The Appalachian Mountain Club maintains post-and-beam lodge "huts" to accommodate day-trip hikers as well as those completing the northern reach of the 2,200 mile Trail.
