Winter Vacation Ideas

'Tis the season when the New Hampshire landscape is a study in contrasts. As bleachy-clean white snow settles on the branches of our deep-emerald evergreens, you have a choice to make: hibernate or recreate? We have winter vacation ideas for both. Dogsledding, snowmobiling, hiking, romantic getaways, family fun—in New Hampshire, skiing is far from the only outdoor winter pursuit.
