New Hampshire

Besides some of the most spectacular alpine scenery in the Northeast, "The Granite State" offers visitors a wide variety of year-round outdoor activities.

What Makes New Hampshire Unique

In winter, skiers and riders have more than 20 operating alpine and 14 Nordic ski areas to visit. For variety, the proximity of the areas allows destination visitors the flexibility to pick and choose a different venue daily. From quiet, family-oriented gentle slopes to a tracked vehicle that transports skiers up Mt. Washington, New Hampshire offers skiing and riding experiences for all tastes and abilities.

In addition to that, the small town feel that New Hampshire brings allows you to truly enjoy your vacation and feel at ease and at home. From their large resort style hotels, to local housing and bed and breakfast inns, your family will most likely make this a yearly trip.

Major Ski Resorts

From its Atlantic coast beaches to the summit of Mount Washington—the East's second highest peak—New Hampshire has activities for everyone in the family. Head to the rugged White Mountains and Great North Woods regions, beginning in the college town of Plymouth and stretch north to the Canadian border alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking, and more. One of the great pastimes in this neck of the woods is moose watching. Moose aficionados from around the world come to photograph these majestic creatures who have a tendency to appear when and where you least expect them. Needless to say, if you see a "Watch for Moose" sign while driving through the state, take it seriously. Near hear, you'll discover most of the ski resorts, some within less than twenty miles of each other. We highly recommend Attitash and Wildcat Mountain (two resorts who share lift ticket passes), as well as Black Mountain, Cannon, Cranmore, King Pine, Loon Mountain, Waterville Valley.

In the Lakes Region, north of Concord, Lake Winnipesaukee is the prime attraction. When it snows, hit the trails for cross-country skiing, downhill skiing and snowboarding, and snowmobiling. Many don't often get to experience what it is like to live near a large lake that freezes every winter. Here you can wind gliding on ice or settle in for some ice fishing. This area brings Gunstock Mountain and Ragged Mountain.

To the west, the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region is named for Dartmouth College, on a bluff above the Connecticut River in Hanover, and the lake and ski resort of Mount Sunapee. It is a vibrant, yet beautiful region that attracted landscape artists and sculptors in the late 19th century. Today, part of the former artist colony in Cornish is located within Saint-Gaudens Historic Site.

Further south, the Merrimack Valley Region is the economic engine of the state, home base for many technological and service-oriented corporations. The City of Manchester, with its wide variety of malls and factory outlets, is a shopping Mecca for visitors from neighboring states who enjoy sales tax-free shopping. Pats Peak, in the south, is a smaller resort, with charm and less crowded ski runs.
