New Hampshire’s Grand North has historically been a destination where visitors can enjoy a wide variety of winter activities. You’ll find some of the best snowmobiling in New England with plentiful snowfall and seemingly endless trails to adventure upon. You can also climb to above tree line aboard the Mt. Washington Snow Coach. Activities that don’t require a motor include cross country and downhill skiing, dog sledding, hiking, snowshoeing, and much more.
Our scenic winter settings are ideal for traditional New England experiences such as strolling down the Main Street of one of our small towns sipping a cup of hot chocolate, or cutting your own Christmas Tree at one of our numerous tree farms. Our Inns and Grand Hotels provide shelter from the snow and cold, along with world class dining and entertainment.
New Hampshire’s Grand North is truly the ideal way to experience winter in New England.
