Just five miles east of downtown Keene, on Route 9, Pinnacle Mountain at Granite Gorge is easy to find. The Pinnacle Express double chairlift is now open, providing top-to-bottom skiing on expanded terrain. The Gorge offers state-of-the-art snowmaking and grooming services. The base lodge offers concessions. Pinnacle Mountain offers great location, protection from the wind, and a north face that holds snow. In addition to alpine skiing and snowboarding trails, there is a terrain park, and a tubing park with a 2.5 minute Wondercarpet lift that leads to the 600' Granite Gorge Tubing Park. They now have the East Coast's only bag jump for freestyle skiers throughout New England and have opened a new Lodge with a full kitchen and the new Lookout Lounge. Now known worldwide for its signature VW bus, the GG Terrain Park crew will be building exciting challenges on their top to bottom terrain parks. Granite Gorge has incredible natural snowmaking for superior top-to-bottom snow and grooming conditions.
