Winter in NH

Winter adventures await you in New Hampshire!

Every year, visitors and locals return to the mountains in New Hampshire to keep their winter ski and snowboard traditions alive. With 19 ski areas around the state, there’s fun to be had for every level and ability. New Hampshire is also home to one of the most extensive networks of cross-country ski trails in the East. Be sure to make a trip to the lodge after the day is through for après ski treats. During the holiday season, take a romantic sleigh ride for two, or pile the whole gang into a 20-passenger logging sled.
