Few people can say they owned a ski mountain,
but the Beebe family did.

Charlie and Lucie Beebe had a passion for the outdoors, which led to them starting one of the first ski areas in North America. With an old Ford truck engine, their first rope tow sprang to life in 1937.

Their love of nature and hospitality, led to countless families coming together each weekend to ski. The Beebe family owned and operated Temple Mountain for over 50 years.

Charlie and Lucie's son, Mike, carries on the skiing legacy in his new book, "My Cathedral: Temple Mountain." This website is dedicated to sharing memories of the pioneering days of skiing in New Hampshire.
