Winter in NH! Any ideas of what I can do?

Skiing is the major winter recreation in New Hampshire. Every weekend Interstates, 89, 93 and 95 are packed with enthusiastic die hard skiers running up to catch a few runs at their favorite resort.  What if I don't ski?

A short list of to do's this winter.  We still have a month left of this cold weather 

Snowmobiling: You can explore the outdoors and travel around the state. The trails lead you from town to town, gas, restaurants and also can be used as a tool to enjoy ice fishing in remote locations. If you don't own one, rent. 

Snowshoeing: An inexpensive quiet way to get out and enjoy the winter wonderland. One benefit of snowshoeing is you do not need any type of trail system. Park, put your shoes on and get out into the woods, not much chance of getting lost you can always follow your tracks back.

X-Country Skiing: Touring centers are located around the state or you can create your own trail. If you don't have your own equipment rent!

Sledding: Just ask your neighbor with kids and they can direct you to the closest hill!

Dog Sledding Adventures: Yes there are kennels that can take you out on the trails to enjoy an adventure of a lifetime.

Ice Fishing: If you have never been find one of your fishing fanatic friends and ask them to take you along. For a family adventure concentrate on yellow perch, flags will be flying!

Mount Washington Snow Coach: Head up to Mount Washington and take a trip up the auto road in winter comfort.

Sleigh Rides: Experience the excitement of gliding through the snow being pulled by majestic work horses.  Snuggle under a blanket and enjoy the scenery.

Winter Hiking: Yes you can hike in the winter, experienced well-equipped hikers only. Special equipment and clothing are required.

Ice Climbing: Special Equipment and training are required. Yes, lessons are available to learn.

Skating: Check the ponds around your area or with your town, many towns have in town rinks

Maple Syrup: The maple sugar season is almost here. Visit one of the many sugar shacks around the state.

If your not into an adventure you can sit in front of your fireplace with a good book, shop until you drop, go to a movie, visit a new restaurant or an evening at one of our bed and breakfast locations.

Winter in New Hampshire is ever changing, dress for the worst conditions and leave an itinerary of where you will be and estimated time to return.
