If you’re planning a visit to Jackson, New Hampshire you’re likely planning to take in the great out doors that the region has to offer. In the autumn this means taking in colorful nature hikes to see the leaves change, while the summer means hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking or just relaxing along the mountain streams or gazing at the various area waterfalls. The water in New Hampshire can be cool, but not too cold during the summer, and the mountain air is warm without being too hot.

Of course New England is typically transformed into a winter wonderland for almost half of the year, and the White Mountain villages have some of the first ski towns in the United States. There are plenty of options to skit from November through March, and sometimes into April or even early May in the higher elevations. There are trails for cross country skiing, telemark skis, as well as snowboards, snowshoe and snowtubbing. And for the adventure skier there are options to skip the ski lift, and take special tour complete with a van that will drive you well-above the tree line and let you ski down!

If you’re looking to take in the sights at a slower pace there are even horse-drawn sleighs that can take you through the area as it has been done for more than 200 years!
