About 7 miles north of North Conway on NH 16 is Jackson NH, right at the geographical center of the Mount Washington Valley, and the central point for cross-country skiing in the region.



Besides being right in the middle of the downhill ski areas, Jackson NH has its own ski touring organization.

It also has a collection of delightful inns open winter and summer.

The center of the ski touring activity in the Mount Washington Valley is Jackson, where the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation, PO Box 216, Jackson NH 03846 (tel 603-383-9355), maintains and grooms over 90 miles (150 km) of cross-country trails.

The foundation is a nonprofit village organization dedicated to encouraging ski touring in and around Jackson, and it has a small office in the center of the village. Check here for passes, information, maps.

There is a nominal fee for the use of the trails; a season membership is available.

Ski clinics, tours, and equipment rentals can all be found both in Jackson and in North Conway at the several ski shops.
