Winter is Snow Much Fun

Winter in Mt. Washington Valley

Welcome to the Mt. Washington Valley, New England's premier snow sports and winter playground. The winter season is all about the snow and the multitude of activities you can enjoy when you visit! With seven Alpine Resorts and six Nordic & Snowshoe Centers, all within 1/2 hour of North Conway Village, skiing is our primary winter sport. For people who don’t ski or snowboard most resorts offer alternative activities such as tubing, ice skating and scenic chairlift rides. The Valley is also known as a premier destination for snowmobiling with over 200 miles of trails winding through the White Mountain National Forest giving riders some of the best views in the Valley. We have many more ways to get you out on the snow and ice such as relaxing sleigh rides, world-class ice climbing or just joining the fun in a winter event. There are wonderful choices for lodging from motel to resort. Find your getaway here.  

We're happy to announce that North Conway was voted the #1 ski town in North America in the USA Today/10 Best Reader poll, outpacing legendary ski destinations like Aspen, Breckenridge, Taos and more! Read all about it here.

March 14 update:

The groundhog was right! Welcome back to winter in Mt Washington Valley, NH!
Cowabunga!  We're in the sweet spot of the second Nor'Easter in 10 days.  We've received anywhere from a foot to nearly four feet of snow in the past 14 days!  The most recent Nor'Easter deliverd up to 22" of snow throughout the Valley's 13 ski resorts and XC Centers.  We're skiing and riding on the best conditions of the year.  You really don't want to miss out!  This is really nice white fluff!
