SUMMER MOUNTAIN ADVENTURES
This page has not yet been updated for summer 2020. We're working on it! Check back periodically for updates.
Be sure to "know before you go". As New Hampshire’s stay-at-home guidelines are relaxed and summer attractions begin to open, it’s important for guests and visitors to be aware that businesses are modifying operations for the summer in accordance with guidance set by the State of New Hampshire. We recommend that you learn about these changes as part of your planning process, and invite you to visit Ski NH’s COVID-19 Consumer Resource Page to learn more. By being educated and working together, we can keep each other safe and provide more opportunities for all to get out and enjoy all that New Hampshire has to offer.
If you're looking for some high adventure and your next adrenaline rush just look to the mountains for your next adventure. Play in the tree tops, zip down zip lines and ride a mountain coaster, where you control the speed of your ride.
The Canopy Tour is situated high on the slopes of Bretton Woods and descends over 1000 feet of elevation. The 3-hour tour takes nature-lovers and thrill-seekers across a series of tree-top zip lines through a network of platforms high in the ancient hemlocks. This unique canopy tour features a dual-cable construction where you slide below two separate cables instead of just one and all platforms and bridges are milled from locally-harvested wood sources, in keeping with our commitment to environmentally sustainable programs.
The Bretton Woods Canopy Tour features 9 zip lines ranging from 120 to 830 feet long, 2 sky bridges, 3 rappels, 16 tree platforms ranging from 10 to 70 feet high and zip speeds up to 30 mph.

You're securely suspended within the trees in 8 courses, including the Explorer Course just for kids. Some of the features include log ladders, bridges, swings, seesaws, foot bridges and, of course, lots of zip lines.
Included in the Discover Adventure, the Mountain Coaster is essentially a cross between an alpine slide and a roller coaster, set on the mountainside. This thrilling ride takes folks uphill through the forest before gravity takes over on the way down. The downhill track is designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own braking system, allowing you to slow speeds to a comfortable pace or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels! Hooting and hollering are encouraged!
