NH Winter Adventures! Driving habits can determine the activities!

The beaches are empty and the landscape is winter white gold. You can almost judge the activities on any given weekend by the traffic heading up Interstate 89, 93 or Rt 16.

On any given day the flow of trucks at 5 to 6 am are ice fishermen heading up to the uncrowded frozen beaches setting up bob houses. Next are the skiers around 7-8 am, interesting the skier traffic seems sparse until you get to your favorite resort and the parking lot is full? Where did all the people come from there wasn't a car on the highway.  9 to 10 am you have the third round of visitors towing snowmobile's to their prized destination. There are 1000's of miles of trails so you can start in Concord and have lunch in Conway or Hanover. Those sleeping late will be on the road around 11 am heading up to snowshoe, skate, cross country ski or ice fishing on one of the warm water lakes. The next crowd is the lunch and shopping group, mixed in this pack are the snow tubers. They typically head to the outlet stores in North Conway or Tilton around lunch to 2 pm or to one of ski resorts for a couple of hours of aggressive sliding. Everyone gets back on the highway around 3:30 to head home so your best bet to avoid traffic is stay over and go home the next morning.
