Guide to Winter

NH Ski and snow magazine

NH Ski and Snow magazine is an annual publication produced by McLean Communications.

Mountains large and small have worked through the off-season to prepare - upgrading, improving and otherwise putting a shine on their respective resorts. Now, it's time for you to clear the cobwebs off your boots, grab your goggles and head to New Hampshire's ski country.

We invite you to read the digital edition by clicking on the image below or pick up a print copy. Copies are available for free at welcome centers in NH, MA, CT and RI.
