Skiing in Black Mountain
Black Mountain has a compact ski area crammed with 40 ski runs served by two chairlifts (A triple and a double) and two surface tows. Almost all of the terrain has snowmaking cover.
The terrain is divided equally in to beginner, intermediate and expert runs. Beginners have their own area at the base of the lifts and lift but can progress on to long easy trails like Sugarbush and Black Beauty further up the mountain.
Intermediate runs are largely concentrated to the right of the East Bowl Triple and include classic long cruisers like Galloping Goose (below the steep upper section) as well as the Sugar Glades.
Experts can test their skills on the super steep Mr. Rew or the winding narrows of Upper Galloping Goose. They can also check out the Lostbo Glades, the Black Forest Glade or Carter Notch for some of the finest tree skiing in the East.
Throughout the season events are organised including skiing around obstacle courses, family fun races, timed competitions and telemark clinics.
More the 150km of cross country ski trails can be accessed at the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation.

Black Mountain Aprés Ski
Apres action is centred on the Lostbo pub, one of the best on mountain après spots in the Mount Washington Valley.
There are plenty of places for a quiet drink in nearby Jackson and the surrounding Mt Washington Valley. Serious apres skiers will take a trip to the Woodstock Inn, home to the Woodstock Station (the town's original train station, now attached to the rear of the main inn) which serves a casual 148-item menu for lunch and dinner. Variety, hearty portions, and nightly entertainment have turned the Station into the locals' hot spot.
As if that's not enough, the Woodstock Inn Brewery is also on-premises. The seven-barrel brewing system offers six freshly brewed ales at all times. The attached Brewpub is a cosy room where locals and travellers socialize over pints, often watching the brewers at work perfecting their handcrafted ales, porters, and stouts.
