Dartmouth Skiway


 

39 Grafton Turnpike - Lyme Center
Phone: 603-795-2143


It is the best of both worlds: big-mountain challenge and terrain combined with small-town New England friendliness and charm. It is the Dartmouth Skiway. Just two hours from Boston and five hours from New York, the Skiway is a quick trip from the crush of the big city to the tranquil forests of New Hampshire. In the finest of old New England traditions, the Skiway is a family fun destination. With reasonable prices, state of the art snowmaking and grooming, the Dartmouth Skiway has become a favorite of skiers and riders from near and far for very good reason.

Dartmouth Skiway offers big-mountain challenges in a family-friendly setting with more than 100 ski-able acres spread over two mountains and enough terrain variety to thrill any ski or snowboarding enthusiast. No matter what your skiing style, the Skiway has something fun for everyone: a 968-foot vertical drop, affordable ski tickets, a full-service day lodge, superb grooming, and exciting terrain features. A special ticket price also means a family can enjoy a weekend of skiing and riding at the Skiway for one great price.

Over the years, the history-rich Skiway has contributed 86 members to Winter Olympic teams, and hosted the 2003 NCAA Championships. More than $600,000 has been spent over the past three years on snowmaking upgrades to ensure great snow conditions. It is the home of nearly 100 Dartmouth All-Americans and more than 30 national champions, many of whom now bring their families here to ski. Dartmouth Skiway provides challenges for all skiing and riding abilities.
