Crotched Mountain Lodging
Crotched Mountain is a mid-sized New England ski area that sits on the peak of the same name near Francestown, New Hampshire. The ski area reopened in 2003 after a long period of being closed. The new ski area has 23 named runs with more planned, a vertical of 1016 feet and a skiable acreage of 75 acres. If you’re coming out to try out the new mountain, you’re going to want to stay someplace other than the back of your car. Here are some options for Crotched Mountain lodging.
Crotched Mountain Resort
The closest Crotched Mountain lodging to the ski area is at the resort with condominiums with a great view of the slopes. There are twenty-four units, each with full kitchens, fireplaces and washers and dryers. Each unit is decorated with traditional clap board exteriors and features Federal period colors, hearkening back to earlier historic times. For après ski, gather in the communal hot tubs to talk about the latest runs down the slope or head in to The Toll Booth for live bands on the weekends and cold beer and hot food any other time.
