Mountain Weather Report

Cold temps are here through Saturday and that mean our guns and towers continue firing away today on Sawyer's Swoop, Upper Swoop, Outer Bounds, and High Ridge. So far, they've hit the ball out of the park as evidenced by all the trails we've recently opened. They may get a well deserved rest early next week as milder temps are on the way on Sunday and Monday and then they'll get right back at it for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday weekend!

Current Weather

Scattered snow flurries today with temps reaching the low 20s at the base and low teens at the summit. Current base temp of 24 degrees and 12 degrees at the summit.

Weather Forecast

Sunshine on Saturday giving way to increasing clouds with daytime temps reaching the high 20s at the base and the summit.

Wind is not a factor at Bretton Woods! Wind has affected lift operation only 10 out of 5251 days.

Snow Reporter's Comments

Another inch of fluffy snow on the slopes today with scattered snow squalls passing through the valley. Should be a stellar weekend coming up at the mountain RANKED # 1 in GROOMING AND SNOW in the East for the second year in a row by Ski Magazine! The Bethlehem Express and Zephyr High Speed Quads will be spinning at 8 am sharp on Saturday providing access to top-to-bottom, machine-groomed terrain. Grab the first chair and you'll be cruising fresh corduroy on over 100 acres of open terrain including Bigger Ben, Big Ben, Ben, Range View and Crawford's Blaze plus several new trails. We'll have the Learning Center Quad operating at 8 am sharp as well for beginners who want to cruise down Rosebrook Meadow and Rosebrook Lane. We're not stopping there! Look for a delayed opening of the Rosebrook Summit Quad at around 10 am providing access to High Ridge and Upper Swoop. Lift tickets are $39 for all ages until November 27th, and seniors 65+ can enjoy a $25 ticket Monday-Friday, non-holiday. Ski ya at The Woods!
