Mt. Eustis, located in Littleton, New Hampshire, will reopen this season after four decades of closure. The town voted to lease the land to the Mt. Eustis Ski Hill Group, a local non-profit, for $1 per year. A 1,300-foot rope-tow has been refurbished by students from the Littleton High School allowing skiers and riders to access the 33-acre property.
Mt. Eustis opened back in 1939 and continued to operate into the 1970’s.
With the operation run by volunteers and funded through donations, the goal is to keep the ski hill functioning year to year with minimal taxpayer impact to provide affordable skiing and snowboarding to area residents, families and youth, with the slopes also available for school, after school and local youth ski programs.
With two open trails and a natural gladed area in between, Harkless said the hill should keep enough interest for a full day of skiing for beginning skiers to those more experienced.
