New Hampshire Ski Area Reopens For The First Time Since 2020

By

Granite Gorge is back in the saddle again. In spite of warm weather to start New England’s winter, Granite Gorge Mountain Park in Keene, New Hampshire opened for the season today, with this being the first time they’ve been open since March 2020.

For its opening day, they had the Park Avenue terrain park open, which is serviced by the Park Avenue Tow. Park Avenue currently has four jibs and two jumps. Their snow tubing park is also open, which is serviced by a magic carpet. The Pinnacle Double Chairlift and the Glider Carpet are scheduled to open soon after they complete their respective inspections.

The new ownership group purchased it at a foreclosure auction in 2022,  as the old owner lost interest in running the mountain following losing his brother/business partner during the pandemic.

During the 2022 off-season, they worked on getting the lifts up to code, renovating the lodge, and clearing off the trails. The focus of winter operations will be an extensive terrain park network and a spot where beginners can learn to ski or ride.

In terms of lift ticket prices this season, they’re currently at the early-season rate for Weekends and Holidays. When the Pinnacle Double Chairlift opens, they’ll move to the regular prices for adults, while the early season rates will apply to Juniors and Seniors.

Congrats to Granite Gorge for reopening!
