DIXVILLE NOTCH, New Hampshire — The Balsams Grand Resort Hotel is offering an irresistible rate during the month of January. From Sunday to Thursday, guests will have the opportunity to book the Ski Free Package for only $79 per night. This package includes lodging, breakfast in the dining room, lift tickets to the alpine ski area, and trail passes for cross-country skiing.

Located on 15,000 private acres in the Great North Woods high in New Hampshire’s majestic White Mountains, The Balsams Grand Resort Hotel takes full advantage of its unique geographic location and surrounding wilderness to offer a world class experience to Nordic skiers second to none. Ninety-five kilometers of cross country ski trails — including 77 kilometers of impeccably groomed trails on diverse terrain — and New England’s most dependable snow conditions create the ideal experience for cross country skiers of all ages and abilities.

In addition to Nordic skiing, The Balsams is known for its alpine ski area featuring 16 trails and five glades with runs up to one mile long. Families in particular will enjoy that all trails begin at the top of the lift and end at the base lodge, making it easy to reconnect after runs.

Adding to The Balsams’ allure is the “Notch Effect,” a term coined by natives to describe the area’s favorable weather patterns. In winter, The Balsams boasts New England’s most dependable snow conditions, with precipitation rarely changing from snow to rain. This makes for the most exciting array of winter activities in New England.
