“Great at what it does!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Pats Peak isn't a big mountain and it's not a destination resort, but it's a wonderful hill to go to for a pleasurable ski experience. The trails are relatively short, the vertical isn't impressive and the lifts aren't particularly high speed. But don't let that stop you if you want to enjoy a great day of skiing, particularly if you're taking the whole family. Like hundreds and hundreds of kids, our son learned to ski at Pats -- and now he's living the ski life in Salt Lake City.
The owners have done a whole lot over the past few years to upgrade the facility as a spot for weddings, reunions, meetings, etc. It really is a nice spot for a function.

“A great year round venue”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Pat's Peak is not only the premier ski area in southern NH but also a great event venue all year.

Their event planning and catering services are excellent and the setting is beautiful. They do a great job with weddings, as well as anniversary parties, corporate events, and community functions.

“Family friendly mountain!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

My kids learned to ski and snowboard here. They still want to go there in the beginning of each season to take a lesson. Both boys swear they have the best instructors:-) If you're looking for low-key, uncrowded and friendly, this is your mountain. If you're looking for challenging, fast paced terrain and crowds, then don't go here. I'm an intermediate skier and can do their blacks without any difficulty at all. Pats peak is wonderful for children and families. My boys have been going off to ski without mom (if I needed a bathroom break, or just a break in general) here since they were 11 and 7, and not once did i worry about them. My son loves the terrain park. They have two separate lodges, and very rarely do they feel crowded. It's easy to pack in your own food, but if you're going to purchase food, their prices are fairly reasonable. Their cookies are fabulous! Pat's is also a super place to go if you're just learning as an adult, or if perhaps you've taken some time off from skiing and want to go back. I've heard that they are planning on expanding in the near future. While I'm excited about that, I hope it doesn't ruin the small family mountain feel.

“Pats Peak, a nice place for a family day-trip skiing.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Pat's Peak is a fine place for families, under 2 hours from Boston. It's not a large area but has varied terrain and is challenging enough for most folks. I'm an advanced skier and while it's not Sugarloaf it's also much closer and the kids love the homemade cookies they sell in the lodge, which atypical of most things at any ski area, are actually a pretty good deal. How can you go wrong?
