King Pine is very family friendly and wonderful place for children or even adults to learn to ski. Every staff member we came into contact with was extremely friendly from ticket sales to ski lift operators everyone was fabulous.. We had 1 child and 1 adult ski lesson and the instructors took their time and made it much less intimidiating than we expected. We will ski King Pine again next year

Great little place to ski and have a nice time - not crazy like bigger mountains. Up and down quickly, variety of trails.

King pine is a friendly Ski resort with easy runs for skiers like me, and great for experts. There is everything there to make your trip enjoyable.
If you don't ski, there is ice skating, snow shoeing or hiking.
The area is beautiful, the people friendly and very accommodating.
King Pine really is worth a visit. The slopes are empty during the week and prices are 2 for 1, which makes a huge difference. (Unlike the extortionate prices in Europe)
There is a restaurant serving snacks (I am now hooked on corn dogs) and hot drinks.
Staff are always willing to help, there is a great ski school and its all very child friendly. If you visit New Hampshire for skiing, don't miss out on King Pine.

My wife and I recently moved up to New Hampshire and visited King Pine to take our first crack and snowshoeing. It was a blast! The people there were very helpful in explaining how to put them on correctly and not to mention they're prices are some of the best we've seen.

We found a great trail that took you to a lookout tower with a great view of the mountains. It is not too long but a little strenuous. However, it's well worth the trip up!
