If you’ve been to a ski area on a weekend, you’ve seen them: groups of little skiers being shepherded around the mountain by their instructors. Sometimes they’re in the bumps, sometimes in the mini-park, sometimes cruising around race gates. Always improving their skiing, because they’re out…
After a brief warmup early this week, the temperatures dropped, and snowguns fired up around the state. Ready or not, ski season is coming, and there are a slew of changes — big and little — at resorts across New Hampshire waiting for skiers and snowboarders this season.
Spring started this week, which means ... well, the days are longer, providing more daylight to enjoy snowy adventures. I know the non-winter-lovers are getting a little grumpy at this point, as visions of flip-flops and beach outings dance through their cold-addled heads.

Wait, wait, wait! The Super Bowl doesn’t start until 6:30 Sunday evening. That leaves all weekend for skiing — or fat biking, or talking like a pirate and looking for treasure. And there’s plenty of all of that on tap this weekend, along with some ticket deals and ski demo opportunities to e…
The first organized hockey game in the United States was purportedly played in 1883 on the Lower School Pond at St. Paul’s School in Concord.
I’m staring at the ice a few inches from my face, trying to determine my next move.
A canine cacophony of yips, barks, and howls rings out beneath a cold, blue winter sky. A few dozen dogs of various hues strain against their harnesses, antsy to pull the three sleds hooked up behind them.
Though we’d never met, Bebe Wood greeted me as she does every guest at Ragged Mountain Resort — as if I were a very dear and long-lost friend. This 91-year-old, white-haired dynamo hung up the skis about five years ago, but she can’t stay away from skiing, a sport that has provided her with …
