Situated just north of Hanover in rural Lyme is one of New Hampshire’s hidden treasures – the Dartmouth Skiway, home to one of the nation’s elite collegiate ski programs. With 104 skiable acres covering two mountains, 30 trails and ample terrain to satisfy every level, the Skiway has been referred to as “the essence of a family ski area” by the Boston Globe. You will find the modern McLean Lodge the perfect place for warming up between runs, getting a bite to eat or just relaxing. But the real draw for me – no long lift lines and adult lift tickets at half the price of the Skiway’s big named cousins – $40 per day weekends, $25 weekday. Two and one half (2 1/2) hours from Boston, MA and Hartford, CT, the Skiway beckons. Stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut and get a $10 discount on adult weekend tickets.
