Ski New Hampshire

Billed as New Hampshire’s official state sport, skiing in New Hampshire draws vacationers from all over during the winter season. Many of the ski areas double as overall resort areas, so there are plenty of things to do if you want to come in from the cold. Instruction is often available, and the instruction doesn’t stop with skiing – it’s for the extreme sport of snowboarding too. You know that there is a skiing craze going on when there is actually a ski museum to be found: New England Ski Museum, featuring ski equipment relics, is in Franconia. Alpine or cross-country, you may well end up skiing in New Hampshire even if it wasn’t your first vacation intent!

The Great North Woods region is an outdoor lover’s pleasure, since the woods and bodies of water are the strong part of this region. Seemingly innate sports flow in the Great North Woods: boating, fishing, hunting, wildlife observing, camping, and in the wintertime, snowmobiling. Cultural diversity is maximized in this region, mainly due to the Great North Woods’ proximity to Quebec, Maine, and Vermont. Watch for the moose here; there are plenty!
