Located in Manchester, McIntyre ski area is a popular regional learning facility.

Discussion of a constructing a ski facility in the greater Manchester dates back to at least 1962, when local political leaders appealed to the New Hampshire State Parks Director to include Derryfield Park in a survey of potential ski areas. Derryfield was initially rejected in the fall of 1962, as a government advisory council opted to recommend a development on nearby Mt. Uncanoonuc.

The Mt. Uncanoonuc proposal eventually stalled, perhaps prompting the City of Manchester to push forward with a Derryfield Park development.

The city eventually installed two double chairlifts for the 1970-71 season, serving slopes covered by snowmaking.

After nearly three decades of public management, the City of Manchester leased McIntyre ski area to McIntyre Ski School Inc. Since being awarded the lease, McIntyre Ski School Inc. has purchased new Magic Carpet lifts and snowmaking equipment. In addition, a new base lodge was built by Conneston Construction for the 2010-2011 season.
