The Dartmouth Skiway is a ski area located about twenty minutes north of Dartmouth College in Lyme, New Hampshire. It has thirty trails from easiest (green circle) to most difficult (black diamond) on over 100 acres (400,000 m²) of skiable area.
The Dartmouth Skiway has a summit elevation of 1943 feet (592 m) and a base elevation of 975 feet (297 m) giving it a vertical drop of 968 feet (295 m). Its longest trail is 1.25 miles (2 km). There are three lifts which service the trails at the skiway including the Winslow Mountain Quad, the Holt's Ledge Double, and the J-Bar Beginner Lift. These lifts give the ski area an uphill capacity of 3,300 skiers per hour. Snowmaking covers about seventy percent of the area with over fifteen snowguns. There is a terrain park located on the Winslow side. The Dartmouth Skiway Ski and Snowboard School has a staff of over 35 instructors. The Dartmouth Skiway is patrolled by the Dartmouth Ski Patrol, a joint community and student first aid volunteer organization, and is home to the Dartmouth Ski Team, which hosts the alpine skiing events of the Dartmouth Winter Carnival there annually.
The Dartmouth Skiway opened in 1957 and is now one of two college-owned ski areas in the northeast, along with the Middlebury College Snow Bowl. In 2000, the 16,000 square foot (1,500 m²) McLane Family Lodge was opened.
