Logo   Winter Activities in North Conway NH
Skiing, skiing and more skiing, with five downhill areas and a cross-country ski center right here among the cozy country inns.




Downhill Skiing

The Mount Washington Valley includes five alpine ski areas: Attitash, Black Mountain, Mount Cranmore, King Pine, and Wildcat Mountain.

Besides the five developed ski areas in the valley, it is possible to ski in the cirque at Tuckerman Ravine, where the shadows protect the snow long past the time when the cover on other slopes has begun to melt. More...

Cross-Country Skiing

Every alpine ski area in the valley has some cross-country trails, some of which are very easy, some of which are only for experts. The center of the ski touring activity in the valley is Jackson. More...

Other Winter Sports

Because of the state parks, national forest, and private reserves in the valley, lots of other winter sports are popular here. Winter camping is possible, using a tent or the Appalachian Mountain Club huts, a few of which are open all winter.

Snowmobiling is also pretty big in the valley, and places in North Conway will rent you a machine by the hour or the day.

Ice-skating rinks are maintained by the towns of North Conway, Conway, and Jackson.

Various ponds and lakes are not bad for ice fishing—the locals will be glad to give visitors tips on the most-visited ice-fishing spots.

Tennis clubs in Glen and North Conway now have indoor courts suitable for winter play, and guest memberships are available. Contact the Mount Cranmore Racquet Club (tel 603-356-6301).
