Bretton Woods Gondola


No time has been wasted this spring, as construction of Bretton Woods' new gondola kicked into full gear at the end of the ski season.

Footings and terminals were mostly constructed in 2018 prior to the project being halted late in the fall due to "supply chain delays coupled with the 5 feet of snow."

Since resuming this spring, the drive has been installed in the base terminal, cabins parked, and lower towers put into place.

The new lift will be roughly 6,000 feet long, climbing 1,300 vertical feet, terminating about 100 vertical feet below the summit of Mt. Rosebrook. Ride time is expected to be less than 5 minutes. The 8 passenger lift will be one of three enclosed ski lifts in New Hampshire. A new lodge will be constructed at the top of the lift, which is expected to operate year round.
