We were looking for something fun and different to do with the kids for an overnight. We booked Tuckerman's cabin for a little adventure. With bags on our backs, we headed up the mountain a little after 7pm. I failed to get clarification as to the location of the cabin, so we just headed up the way we thought would... More

We have rented a house for 3 years in a row (New Years weekend) right near Shawnee Peak, and I can tell you that for 2-3 days of skiing, you won't be bored. Also, it's a great mountain for beginners, and for kids.Snow making is decent, and there is night skiing till 10PM, which is great - you really get... More

My wife and I are not skiers but took the 2 hr trip from Concord, NH up to Shawnee Peak to try out the BigAirBag snowtubing and it didn't disappoint. It is quite an awesome feeling to slide down the hill and then suddenly find yourself flying in the air onto the stunt bag! Some cons of the area were... More

HI, I do hope that this review gets published as it is very negative concerning customer service. The owner, CHET HOMER III, is the most DISRESPECTFUL PERSON REGARDING CUSTOMER SERVICE that i have ever met and I am 53 years old, a large business owner myself. His management staff is as DIRESPECTFUL. I COULD JUST NEVER JUSTIFY SPENDING ANOTHER PENNY... More

Shawnee is a perfect mountain if you're looking for the way it used to be. Quaint is often a misnomer for old, whereas this ski area is small, quiet, well run and ideal for families and quite honestly, anyone looking to carve in a few runs. The lift system is nice, the trails are well groomed, and the safety features... More

We have been driving to North Conway, NH for the past few years to ski at Attitash, Bretton Woods, Wildcat ... we always drive *by* Shawnee Peak, so this year we decided to check it out. While it isn't a "big" hill, we found it well groomed and enjoyable. Typical of ski hills, though, the food was sadly over-priced. ($3.50... More

I had my first experience with skiing at Shawnee Peak and it was great! The staff, manager, and ski teachers were very friendly and nice. After taking the skiing class I was ready to ski! The first two slopes are great for beginners but I found the rest of the slopes to be very advanced, so be careful if you... More

Shawnee is a great family mountain. Not the biggest but with the right conditions, it offers great family skiing and the best night skiing in New England. Very reasonable lift ticket prices. Highly recommend.
