New Hampshire offers much to its residents during the cold winter months. Even if your idea of a perfect winter weekend involves relaxing by the fire, watching a movie, or reading a book, you may still count yourself among the thousands who appreciate all that the snowy great outdoors has to offer.
From family-friendly afternoon activities to learning new skills, we’ve got you covered. Here is our roundup of 10 things you should do before all this snow melts away:
- Snow Tubing: Gunstock’s Thrill Hill Tubing Park has the longest tubing run in New Hampshire. No need to walk all the way up the hill, you can simply relax while the lift pulls you to the top. And don’t forget to try the Air Bag Launch Ramp! This launch ramp is mostly used in professional stunts but is open to the public. Time slots book up quickly, so be sure to purchase your tickets before making the drive.
- Ice Skating or Hockey: The Rinks At Exeter is a state-of-the-art, twin ice rink facility, open for public skating year-round. It also offers youth, adult and competitive hockey as well as figure skating programs. If skating isn’t your thing, they also offer batting cages and an arcade.
- Cross Country Skiing: Pine Hill Ski Club is open 7 days a week and provides its visitors with inexpensive ski classes and rentals. Their accessible ski trails stretch over 15 miles, giving you a full day of new trails.
- A Winter Hike: There are staff-visitor services and amenities that are provided throughout the winter season and day-use fees are required only on weekends and holidays.
- Sledding: Why not take advantage of all this snow? Wagon Hill in Durham is the ultimate place to go sledding. Pack the hot chocolate and bring the entire family.
