Ski Into Spring at NH Resorts with Fun Events & Mid-Season Conditions

Conway, NH—As spring begins to establish itself in the mountains of New Hampshire, ski areas throughout the state welcome bluebird skies and longer days (and longer ski area operating hours).

Resorts celebrate spring by offering discounts on tickets and passes, and by hosting events galore including free concerts, après ski parties, pond skimming and more.
