Many ski areas provide chairlift rides throughout the summer

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - July 26th, 2016 - You may have seen many summits in the winter, covered in white and packed with skiers. But many New Hampshire ski areas have their chairlifts open during the summer months to give guests a different – and much greener – view from the top.

Bretton Woods offers free scenic lift rides on their Bethlehem Express Quad chairlift, which also serves their Latitude 44° Restaurant. Guests can hike down or make it a round trip. The lift operates daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. through September 5. The restaurant opens at 11 a.m. and closes one hour prior to the lift.

The Aerial Tramway at Cannon Mountain brings visitors to its 4,080-foot summit in less than 10 minutes. The view at the top includes mountains from four states and Canada on a clear day.
