NORTH WOODSTOCK, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire ski areas have been busy this summer with new lifts, trails and snowmaking improvements as they get ready for later this year.

Ski NH, the state association representing 33 alpine and cross country resorts in the state, says lifts have been replaced and improved at Ragged Mountain in Danbury and Mount Sunapee in Newbury. The Mount Sunapee lift will cut the ride time to the summit by more than half, to just over 4 minutes.

Other resorts have increased their snowmaking capabilities, such as Pats Peak in Henniker, Granite Gorge in Keene, Cannon Mountain in Franconia, Black Mountain in Jackson, Loon Mountain in Lincoln, Waterville Valley and Bretton Woods.

Cranmore Mountain Resort has started building condominiums. The project is expected to be completed next summer.

Some resorts are adding restaurants or improving them, such as Ragged Mountain, which will have a new wood-fired pizza restaurant.

The McIntyre Ski area is putting lights on an additional trail for more night skiing and tubing. At Loon Mountain, the resort is expanding its kids’ gladed terrain park. Gunstock has upgraded its Adventure Park and Treetop Adventures.
