Conway, NH – Many New Hampshire ski areas are celebrating enormous snowfall gains from Saturday's snowstorm, with some areas reporting more than two feet of new snow. After what has been a challenging season due to warm weather and rain events that resulted in several earlier-than-usual ski area closures, yesterday's storm helped solidify the plans of numerous New Hampshire ski areas to stay open until their expected closing dates, which for many is in mid-April.


The snowfall resulted in several ski areas receiving 24-30 inches of snow, with others receiving snow in the 10-20 inches range. "This late-season storm is going to help our ski areas ride out the rest of the season on a high note," said Ski NH President, Jessyca Keeler. "After challenges with unusually warm temperatures and lots of rain this year, the large snowfall totals are kind of like a built-in insurance policy that they will make it to the finish line."

  • Wildcat Mountain - 30"
  • Cannon Mountain - 22-30"
  • Waterville Valley Resort - 27-30"
