Crotched Mountain Rebirth
||Crotched Mountain, NH is making a comeback! Peak Resorts, based in St. Louis, Missouri will reopen Crotched around December 2003. For the first time, NELSAP will have the opportunity to cover a rebirth of a closed a ski area, and thus we are very excited!. We will post occasional updates on the progress of the reconstruction on the former ski area. Peak Resorts is excited to have us help promote the reopening.|
The Onset/Bobcat/Crotched West portion of the mountain is the only area slated to reopen at the present time.
Please be advised that you can visit the area. The owners only ask that you do not get near any of the equipment on the mountain. Also, please stay out of any base buildings, and stay away from any construction. Otherwise, do swing by the area and check it out.
If you have any historical Crotched Mountain pictures to share with us, just send us an email.

Once the area opens, I'd like to have a few NELSAP ski trips there. Be sure to tell every skier you know about this exciting project!
