More than 550 trails are currently open across the Granite State and more will follow with below-freezing temperatures perfect for snowmaking on the horizon, according to the organization, which supports 31 ski areas across New Hampshire.

All Ski New Hampshire ski areas, both alpine and Nordic, were open on Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, though a couple closed on Saturday due to wind, the organization noted.

“With the snowfall received and ongoing snowmaking efforts adding to the base depth, we are expecting the great skiing and snowboarding that we have to continue throughout the season,” said Melody Nester, assistant director of Ski New Hampshire.
