Discounted NH Ski Tickets

Being a four-season resort definitely has its perks. One major advantage of remaining open all year round is the fact that we have a variety of winter sports right here in the Lakes Region or a short drive away. We have partnered with three of the best ski mountains in New Hampshire to offer our guests the greatest discounts on tickets.

Gunstock Mountain is located right here in the Lakes Region, within a half-hour drive from Steele Hill Resort, and has unparalleled views of Lake Winnipesaukee. Part of the Balknap Mountain Range, Gunstock reaches an elevation of 2,244 feet and has 55 freshly groomed trails to explore. Stay with us for our Gunstock Ski and Stay package and enjoy not only 20% off accommodations of your choice but also 25% off the window rate for all day and night skiing tickets, cross country tickets or tickets for tubing on the largest tubing run in New Hampshire. Steele Hill really is the ideal choice for Gunstock Lodging.

Loon Mountain, located in the midst of the White Mountain National Forest, has an elevation just over 3,000 feet and offers 69 trails throughout three different peaks. In under an hour drive you can experience some of the best-groomed runs on both fresh and machine-made powder while taking in breathtaking views of the surrounding white mountains. Loon offers much more than just alpine skiing and snowboarding, at the mountain you can also take a trip down the winter zipline, snowshoe the scenic trail network, hit the ice-skating rink, or explore multiple cross-country trails.

Waterville Valley, about an hour drive away in the White Mountains, is another large mountain ranging just over 4,000 feet. With a 2,020-foot vertical drop, Waterville has its fair share of advanced, black diamond runs totaling 15, but also caters to beginners and intermediate riders with different lesson packages and trails to suit everyone.

Whichever mountain you choose to shred, you can come back to the resort to relax your sore muscles in the Roman Spa or stargaze and enjoy even more beautiful snowfall from our newest amenity, the outdoor hot tub equipped with a heated walkway. Don’t forget to stop in at our front desk and inquire about the best discounted ski ticket for you!
