New Hampshire Vacation Week

« All Events

Live free and ski!

February 21, 2016 - February 27, 2016

Let's face it, New Hampshire's state motto is way cooler than the other 49 and as it suggests, New Hampshirites are pretty stoked on their freedom. This week, Granite State families are going to be swimming in it because it's school vacation week, and what better way to exercise freedom than to hit the slopes?

Join New Hampshire families for peak conditions at an incredible value, thanks to ski and stay packages at granite rock bottomChild skiing on South Ridge rates. In addition to skiing and snowboarding across all eight mountain peaks, we're flipping the switch and turning on the fun with plenty of special events.

Since we're in Vacationland, it's our job to make yours extra amazing.
