Birches Opens Today!(1)

Fan favorite Birches will open today for skiing and riding. This is one of our favorite trails, as a black diamond, narrow double fall line trail, it is classic New England trail design. Go have a blast on this amazing trail, along with Upper Exhibition and Town Meeting. 

Today marks the start of the Ski NH Weekend, and we're kicking things off with a USSA Open Scored Slalom on Showboat. This race will feature some of the states top U16 athletes, bashing the gates down the steep pitch of Showboat. A great spectators sport from either the Spear Mountain Quad, or the designated spectators area. If you wish to hike up to see the race, please check in at Race Registration on the 2nd floor of the Meeting House Lodge. There you will receive instruction on how to get to the spectators area, and our uphill spectator policy. NO DOGS are allowed on hill, in the base area, or hiking. Because of the race, Showboat will be closed for the majority of the day.

The Pinnacle Plunge Tubing Park will be open today with two sessions, 11 am to 1 pm and 1 pm to 3 pm. Please see Guest Services to purchase a 2 hr tubing session ticket.

The fun continues indoors with some NH Inspired foods from our chef. Check out the 603 Coffee Cake Porter Beef Stew being served in the Harvest Cafe, or have a nice sit down lunch in the Birches Mountain Restaurant and try the NH Chorizo Jambalaya. Plus in the Stone Hearth Bar we will be serving NH Maple Syrup Glazed Chicken Wings to compliment the Woodstock Inn Brewery Tap Takeover from 2 pm to 5 pm. Apres will kick in to full swing with White Steer playing from 3 pm to 6 pm.

We can't wait to celebrate skiing and riding in our wonderful state with all of you today! We'll see you at the mountain.
