Black Mountain is an alpine ski area located in Jackson, New Hampshire. Black Mountain offers terrain for all abilities, including slopes for novices, cruising trails for intermediates, and black diamond trails for experts. Although it's not known for being one of the more significant ski areas in the North Country; it certainly a great place to spend the day skiing,... More

I was so amazed at the friendliness and helpfulness of the whole town. Everyone smiles and walks everywhere. Beautiful shops, exquisite art and crafts and many, many choices for great foods. I love this town

This is a great family mountain. If you are lloking for a ski spot that has a great family atmosphere, this is it. Not many, if any hard trails, but if you have begginer skiiers this is the spot for you!

Great for older people who don't want a challenging mountain. Great for beginners and intermediate skiers. Great staff including ski patrol and instructors.

Black Mountain takes you back in time but don't let the age of the place fool you. The trails are quite challenging and I'm sure will please most all skiing abilities. Yes, the lifts are old and slow but the it's worth making the trip. Skiing midweek offers great pricing. They also have daily specials but we found Thursday to... More

Black Mountain was a very pretty hill but it was definitely older than we expected. The only real lift running was a double that looked like it was from the 50's. The terrain was challenging and the narrow trails would make it harder for beginner skiiers. The lodge was great, older but fine inside. If you are looking to go... More

And that's exactly what I liked about it. Narrow trails and lifts that have to be some of the oldest in the country. Away from all the resort hub-bub and so cool to ski by the horses on your way to the lift and sit out on the deck and watch them in their enclosure.

Black mountain is an old ski mountain with lots of variety of trails for all levels. There is a ski pull for beginners level skiers as well as 2 chair lifts. One of the chair lifts wasn't running when we were there because of the low crowd level. There is a place to eat a packed lunch as well as... More

It is a little smaller than expected. Love the old fashioned Platter-Pull. Trails are fairly easy. Fun for all ages and ski levels. Prices are low too! Food is average. I will go back again!

Great variety of trails for a relatively small mountain. Southern exposure made afternoon skiing on a bright sunny day a pure delight. Not crowded. Decent grooming. Adequate uphill lift capacity on some true museum pieces. Lodge reminiscent of the 1970s but in an old school ski-purist way. Value-oriented ticket pricing, especially the afternoon option. Staff seemed friendly. Lots of families... More
