Winter, a season made for outdoor recreation, is an exhilarating time to be in New Hampshire- the perfect home base for all types of winter sports.
Skiing or Snowboarding at one of New Hampshire's many downhill or cross-country ski areas is one of the best ways to get outside and enjoy the winter!
Snowmobiling is another very popular winter sport in NH- you can ride some of the finest, most picturesque and extensive snowmobiling trails in the East.
Looking for a new twist on time-honored fun? Snowtubing hills make snowtime the fun time for all ages and twenty-first century snow toys provide a whole new way to play. NH ski areas also offer a host of different non-skiing activities- from zip lines to mountain coasters, there's something for everyone!
Snowshoeing has made a comeback, thanks in part of the introduction of lighter, smaller snowshoes. Winter climbing and hiking enable enthusiasts to see a side of New Hampshire few know.
Anglers don't need to cast about for something to do in winter. Bobhouses, the traditional haunt of ice fishermen, dot frozen lakes, while skaters etch icy outlines on rinks, ponds and indoor ice arenas.
Winter also means the sound of sleigh bells, and the old-fashioned pleasure of a horse drawn sleigh ride. For another animal powered experience, try out the thrill of a dogsled ride.There are several companies in NH that offer dog sled tours and you can often find packages from hotels that include lodging and a dog sled ride!
