Cranmore and Bretton Woods
Perfect for the Novice, Intermediate or Expert Skier

Bretton Woods

Bretton Woods has become the biggest ski resort in the whole of New Hampshire through a well thought out development programme. To further compliment the skiing at Bretton Woods, you have the opportunity to ski in nearby resorts such as Wildcat, Attitash, Loon and Canon.

Outstanding views across Mount Washington and the Presidential Range is not the only treat you get from riding one of the resort’s ten lifts. Bretton Woods won an award from Ski Magazine for snow and grooming in 2015.

There are 3 peaks in total which form a wonderful ski area no matter the level of your students. Approximately a quarter of the resort’s trails are designed with beginners in mind, while intermediates will have plenty of challenges to keep them busy. Advanced and expert skiers can enjoy over 40% of Bretton Wood’s black diamond and double diamond runs with a vertical drop of 1,500 feet.


One of the USA’s oldest ski areas, Cranmore offers over 200 acres of varied terrain, from gentle trails and long cruisers to expert runs and steep glades. Yet has some of the very best facilities…the mountain is easily accessible with the express quad which takes you to the top in just 4½ minutes.

Cranmore Mountain Resort was voted ‘Best in New Hampshire for Ski Lessons’ so our groups can be assured of the highest level of instruction, as well as a variety of terrain for all abilities…with all trails returning to one base lodge, and with beginner trails leading down from the very summit the resort is both safe and provides a great experience for beginners.

With its’ state of the art learning centre for ski and snowboard lessons, Cranmore is an exciting, fun-packed mountain that continues to improve and expand its trail network with something to offer everyone which makes it so popular with our groups.
