Winter to you may mean wrapping up in a thick comforter and warming yourself in front of a cozy fireplace.
But if you’re more the adventurous type, you might want to consider a trip to New Hampshire. From downhill and cross-country skiing to snowmobiling to winter camping, those hardy enough to brave the cold have a wealth of adventures to choose from.
Winter means fun in New Hampshire
Downhill ski slopes can be found in every region of New Hampshire, but the most spectacular are in the rugged White Mountains that transect the middle of the state. Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch, for instance, offers a range of skiing experiences for every level of expertise; close by is the New England Ski Museum.
For snowmobile enthusiasts, networks of trails throughout the state are carefully maintained by local snowmobile clubs.
Winter climbing trip: For the most adventurous, the Appalachian Mountain Club offers winter camping and climbing trips in the White Mountains and other New Hampshire locations; some of the trips include valuable instruction for beginning winter campers.
Variety of accommodations: A wide variety of hotels, motels, inns, and Bed and Breakfasts house the thousands of visitors to New Hampshire each winter; and restaurants, from the most humble mom-and-pop eatery to gourmet establishments, meet their dining needs.
Of course, if all you want to do is travel to a toasty warm New Hampshire ski lodge to curl up in front of a roaring fire, with a cup of hot chocolate and a quilt, you can do that too.
