Conway, NH - Ski New Hampshire recently announced that Melody Nester has joined their association as Assistant Director. Nester brings extensive experience in tourism and marketing to the role, where she will support the organization’s 32 downhill and cross-country member ski areas in the state.


Nester was the long-time Assistant Director at the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce, where she honed her skills working with hundreds of chamber members, many of which are tourism and hospitality-based businesses. In addition to her travel and tourism experience, she has extensive experience working with NH state programs related to the industry.

Nester stated,  “I’m a huge fan of skiing and New Hampshire. Being a native of NH, I’ve lived here my whole life. I learned to ski at Sunapee. I joined the race team at Sunapee High. I still love racing, and I still love winters in New Hampshire.  I’m so excited to use my skills in marketing and promotion to support Ski New Hampshire’s member resorts.”
