Who says ski resorts are only for the winter?

It’s almost fall, which means it’s almost winter here in the Granite State (although you wouldn’t know it by yesterday’s temperatures). Ski season is just around the corner, but plenty of resorts have kept themselves busy over the offseason.

The expansion of attractions – like ziplines, tours, hikes and more – has increased the traffic for some resorts.

Mount Sunapee in Newbury offered its Adventure Park park for the second year, which wasn’t short on things to do.

Plenty of other areas have also taken advantage of the weather to make their upgrades for the upcoming season.

But then again, ski resorts are ski resorts for a reason. So check out some of those upgrades you should expect at your favorite place.

While not an upgrade, a new (old) resort is set to open back up after closing in the 1970’s. Mt. Eustis will open after the town of Littleton agreed to lease the ski area to a non-profit for three years at $1 per year, beginning October 1.

So get ready folks, we’re not far away!
