In a Facebook post on the eve of one of Northern New Hampshire's largest snowfalls of the winter, Mt. Prospect announced it will not operate this season.
The northernmost ski area in the Granite State, Mt. Prospect has been in continuous operation since the winter of 2007-08, following a decade-plus stretch of being idle. Mt. Eustis reopened in the winter of 2014-15, providing Northern New Hampshire residents with another rope tow option. In recent winters, Mt. Prospect has only been in operation a few hours per week. Visitation, volunteer participation, insurance, and equipment have been struggles for the non-profit ski area.
Mt. Prospect is one of three state-owned ski areas in New Hampshire. Located in Weeks State Park, the rope tow dates back to the early 1940s and has a 250 foot vertical drop. Additional backcountry and touring terrain connect to the ski area.
