Abenaki is opening on December 26th!

The Wolfeboro Department of Parks and Recreation is thrilled by the gracious winter wonderland here at the Abenaki Ski Area.  The snowfall and forecast are leading up to what we anxiously believe will be a spectacular holiday vacation week.  Snow making began this week and with the help of mother nature we are beginning to cover the ski slope for our intended opening of the rope tow on December 26th.  We invite you to come out and to support your local mountain.  Bring your guests and holiday visitors out to enjoy the best of what Wolfeboro has to offer in the Winter.  We have excellent grooming and you will be amazed at Abenaki conditions and terrain.
