Skiing and Riding

We could spend all day talking about how sick (that means awesome) the skiing and snowboarding is in New Hampshire.  We could name-drop and remind you that America's most accomplished alpine skier of all time, Bode Miller, grew up tearing up the slopes on Cannon Mountain.  We could share stories of kids who've fallen in love with skiing on a Waterville Valley family vacation or of disabled skiers who realize their dreams at Mount Sunapee, home base for the New England Handicapped Sports Association. We'd love to tell you about the eye-popping views from the summit of Wildcat Mountain, and the extreme backcountry skiing at Tuckerman Ravine.  Or that New Hampshire is home to the most extensive network of cross-country ski trails in the East. And we really need to mention that New Hampshire has rich history of skiing, dating back to 1914.
