Independence Weekend

Saturday, January 13, 2018 to Sunday, January 14, 2018

Four score and seven years ago, the invention of snowmaking freed us from these whims of Mother Nature. Join us this weekend as we celebrate our hardworking snowmakers (and New Hampshire's most powerful snowmaking system) with snowcat rides, fireworks, and an unforgettable torchlight parade.
