Holiday Greetings! We are excited to be welcoming guests to our winter resort this week on account of the half-foot of new, natural snow that fell early this week adding to the already stellar base that snowmaking crews have been working on for King Pine Ski Area's opening day this Friday, December 16, 2016 from noon to 7 p.m. Expectations are that we'll have significant terrain ready for opening day and that we'll be near to (if not fully) 100% open for Christmas Week including snowtubing, ice-skating and more. Visit the King Pine Snow Report page for the full report.

Now is the time to book your ski & stay getaway. Winter Fun is what Purity Spring Resort is for so many and we invite you discover your tradition this winter. Ski, snowboard, skate, snowshoe, snowtube and more at King Pine and choose from a variety of slopeside, mountainside and lakeside accomodations, all near to the ski area.

Check out some of the available package options, including ski & stay, or call us at 800-373-3754 or 603-367-8896 and we'll assist you with planning the perfect family winter fun vacation.

Sincerely, The Hoyt Family
