Friday Night Uphill Series

By popular demand, our Friday Night Uphill series is coming #BackTOBlack for 2023

Friday Night Uphill is BACK!!!!

   Our Friday Night Uphill Series has come #BackTOBlack.


     Our weekly series kicks off at 5:00 and runs until 8:00.  All Participants can sign up in the base lodge between 4:30-7:15 where they will fill out a waiver, and pay for their ticket.  Although the event is free for Black Mountain Passholders, passholders must still fill out a waiver and register for the event each week to be entered into our weekly drawings.

     Our friends at Gorham Bike and Ski have a full fleet of DPS Demo skis, AND Jones Splitboards if you don't have your own set up yet.  Fill out the form below and one of their team members will contact you to set you up with a pair of DPS demos.


     Everyone's favorite Tots Coach, Maeve, will be up at the LOSTBO Cabin, serving cold beverages, and the LOSTBO Pub will be open in the base lodge.


     We will have a few of our Ski School Coaches available to help coach any rookies on their way up.

     So, tell your friends, spread the word and get ready for the return of our Friday Night Uphill Series at Black Mountain, in beautiful Jackson, NH!



Black Mountain is a licensed establishment, and reserves the right to ban for life, any guest who fails to follow NH State Liquor Laws on our property.
