Abenaki Ski Area is a community owned and operated ski area in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. With trails cut first in 1936, and the
ropetow and the lodge built in 1940, Abenaki is the oldest small ski area in America, as well as one of the 10 oldest ski areas in the country overall. During the 2014-2015 season we will be celebrating our 79th Anniversary, so come on out and celebrate great riding, skiing and history in the making at Abenaki this winter.
We are open to the public and offer 7 trails from green to black diamond, glade skiing, night skiing, a terrain park, one of the fastest rope tows on the East Coast, friendly staff and a small lodge with wood stove and space to relax. We have a full size groomer and a small but mighty snowmaking operation—not to mention some of the best conditions you will find in the Northeast. Due to the relatively small crowds (compared to the big boys like Loon, Gunstock and Bretton Woods), there are no lift lines, great conditions with virtually no ice and a friendly, small town vibe.
And the price is right. We’re proud to offer weekday lift tickets for $5 for residents and $17 for our friends from out of town. This is the place to be when the economy is taking a toll on your wallet.
So grab your board or you skis and come join us for fun, inexpensive riding and skiing in the heart of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region!
Abenaki was featured as a cover story in the October 2014 edition of POWDER Magazine. POWDER featured Abenaki as an example of the small, community run ski areas that are making a comeback as an alternative to larger and more expensive resorts. Come visit Abenaki and see what community skiing is all about!
