Mt. Eustis Ski Area, Littleton NH


When my brother Rob and I worked on the Cog Railway, we'd drive over from Mount Washington to Littleton to do our laundry. I remember the place being a tiny town. It's much bigger than I remember. 

Mt. Eustis is yet another small community ski area that gives local families a place to learn to ski and hone their skills. Bailey and I visited today and took the short climb to the top. There's a rope tow, one snow gun, a used snow cat from Bretton Woods (savvy promotional move), a little hut, and a freestyle terrain park.  Their website gives a glimpse of their history: 

Mt. Eustis Ski Hill opened in 1939 but shut down in the early 1980’s. A group of dedicated locals came together to bring back the olden days of skiing at Mt. Eustis. After two years plus of hard work, we opened for the 2016-2017 season in December. We could not have made this happen without our dedicated Board Members, volunteers and the outpouring support from the community.

Right across the street from the ski area's parking lot is the coolest remembrance: Wallace's Horse Cemetery. More on that below, but finding this cemetery is part of what I like about these journeys. There's always something around the corner... or across the road. 

Remember to click on the photos to enlarge. 

                         The big one is Mount Washington among the White Mountains. 

                  I just love that this Wallace fellow cared so much for his wife and her horses...
