Located in the shadow of Mt. Monadnock, the Norm Wight Ski Area is a small facility on the campus of the private Dublin secondary school.
Early Skiing at Dublin School
Founded in 1935, the Dublin School has featured a rich skiing program for decades. For nearly half a century, the school was home to a rope tow served ski area on either side New Harrisville Road, just north of campus. At its peak, the facility sported three rope tows and skiing on both sides of the road.
As larger, modern ski facilities grew throughout, small rope tow areas fell by the wayside. The North slope on Beech Hill was first abandoned, followed eventually by the South slope likely during the 1980s.
Skiing Returns to Dublin School Campus
While students frequented other nearby areas, the school once again looked to develop its own ski area. For the 2010-2011 ski season, a new area was developed near the center of campus. Named after late teacher Norm "Pro" Wight, the ski area was formally opened with a handle tow on January 16, 2011.

Night skiing lights were added for the 2011-2012 season.
The ski area continues to operate in winters for students, faculty, alumni, and their families. Due to the small size of the facility, Dublin School ski teams race at nearby Crotched Mountain.
