Mountain Weather Report

Turning colder after midnight tonight through the weekend with snow flurries expected on Thursday into Friday morning. Should be able to get our snowmaking crew back to work soon to resurface higher traffic trails and more terrain expansion for the upcoming holiday week.

Current Weather

Light rain and drizzle with a current base temp of 35 degrees and 33 degrees at the summit.

Weather Forecast

Snow flurries after midnight and continuing through Thursday with daytime temps in the low 30s at the base and mid 20s at the summit. Morning flurries on Friday followed by clearing skies with temps in high 20s at base and high teens to low 20s at the summit.

Wind is not a factor at Bretton Woods! Wind has affected lift operation only 10 out of 5274 days.

Snow Reporter's Comments

We're blessed to have the MOST OPEN TERRAIN in NH but we're not resting on our laurels! With temps expected to drop over night, it's SNOW DANCE time! Start your best White Gold Watusi, Hokey Powder Pokey, or Mountain Macarena - whatever will bring more delectable downy to the slopes at Bretton Woods! Next up we've got West Mountain on the agenda to open for the upcoming holiday week so rest assured we'll be unleashing our powerful snowmaking capabilities over there real soon, continue to expand terrain on Mt. Rosebrook, and resurface existing trails as well where needed. We should be dropping the ropes soon at Diamond Ridge, Zealand, and Deception Bowl so stay tuned to this report for all the latest mountain updates. Remember early season ticket prices are still in effect at $59–adults, $49–Teens, $43-Juniors, and $25-Seniors through this Friday, 12/19.
