In a Facebook post today, Black Mountain in Jackson, New Hampshire announced that it is ceasing ski operations.
According to the post, "Due to circumstances beyond our control, including soaring energy costs, unpredictable weather, extreme staffing shortages throughout the region, and many other challenges, we have made the very difficult decision to cease operations."
Season passholders will be refunded due to the 2023-24 season closure. No details were given on the future of the property. The ski area last operated on March 26, 2023.
The Fichera family has operated Black Mountain since the ski area's 1995 bankruptcy. In recent seasons, limited snowmaking has taken place while lift issues have emerged.
The Fichera family concluded their Facebook post by stating, "To all of our past and present team members, all season pass holders and guests, extended family and friends - thank you for your support over the years, we will miss you. Thank you for being the true spirit of skiing and keeping the dream alive."
Lift service at Black Mountain commenced during the winter of 1935-36. The 1,100 vertical foot area most recently featured a lift fleet of one double chairlift, one triple chairlift, and three surface lifts.
