Horseback riding at Black Mountain is not only fun but the perfect opportunity to enjoy incredible views of the entire presidential range at an elevation of 2,000 feet. The horses are well trained, friendly and accustomed to inexperienced as well as experienced riders. Other unique programs include overnight excursions for couples and small groups, horse camps for youths, lessons, pony rides and pony parties for younger kids. Black Mountain is also a spectacular setting for weddings, rehearsal dinners, reunions and private functions. Amenities include a professional catering staff, full liquor license, bar/lounge, large outdoor deck and tent space, all surrounded by beautiful views.


Black Mountain is an independent, family-owned and operated mountain. Friendly people have been the heart of Black Mountain for more than 75 years. Family is the focus, from the terrain, to the staff, to the skiers and riders. The area embodies the tranquility and beauty of classic New England skiing with a rustic lodge for après ski enjoyment. The mountain’s southern exposure provides protection on windy days. Providing a great value in lift ticket prices, the area has plenty of ski terrain to keep every family member happy. Black’s peak rises to 3,303 ft. with views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range. Among the improvements for this winter are a complete rebuild of one of the snowmaking pumps and drive motors and replacing the main water distribution station. The triple chairlift also received new computer controls for greater reliability.
