The Balsams Wilderness
Description:

Called "one of the world's 12 poshest ski resorts" by SKI Magazine, The Balsams Wilderness also is considered one of the top cross-country ski resorts in North America. An alpine racing course is set up at The Balsams for regularly scheduled NASTAR races. Plus, there is a separate slope for beginners and a ski-play area for youngsters. Snow conditions usually are just right. The annual snow index for Dixville Notch is 250 inches and the base elevation is one of the highest in the East. Nevertheless, a modern snowmaking system is in place to supplement Mother Nature on 80% of the trails. The snowmaking and grooming crews are very experienced. Certified members of the National Ski Patrol are on duty every day.
