Hey Snow Lovers! Maddi Diaz here, a Plymouth State University Intern working here at Woodstock Inn Brewery.
For me, skiing and snowboarding are the best parts of going to school in this area… so let The Fun Begin because the 2016-17 season is just days away!
It seems like almost all the employees here at Woodstock are just as ecstatic about the arrival of winter being literally and figuratively RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!! We’re lucky to be located just minutes away from some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the Northeast.
Here are the anticipated opening dates for some nearby mountains, plus some highlights for this season, their distance from Woodstock and some of our beers you can find on tap at each location. Note: opening dates are as of 11/21/16 11am. Please refer to ski area websites for updated information.
Bretton Woods– Per their snow report, Bretton Woods opened briefly on Sunday, November 13th with a great turn out and received numerous donations to help “Say Goodnight to Hunger.” However, because of mild temps since, snowmaking efforts were on hold. Fingers crossed, they may be able to open tomorrow, November 22nd! Read the full report here or contact the Ski Operations Office at 603-278-3320.
