Whether you have been coming to the White Mountains since you were a young child or this will be your first (of hopefully many) visit, the White Mountains of New Hampshire is home to tons of outdoor winter fun. Usually, the only things you have to be concerned about is the weather and if your favorite ski trail will be open, but since we’re still in the middle of a global pandemic, we all have a little bit more on your minds these days. But, rest assure, the White Mountains is open for all your outdoor winter activities and doing everything possible to keep you safe.
The global pandemic has changed the world as we know it, especially the workforce. In June 2020, over 42 percent of the U.S. labor force had shifted to working from home full-time. While the work-from-home measures were meant to be temporary during the virus surge, many employers have extended their work-from-home options for employees even as long as 2022.
As the struggle to hire and retain a talented workforce increases, innovative companies look for new ways to keep employees engaged, motivated and content.
Have you dreamed of getting married in the white castle at the foot of Loon Mountain? Or maybe you’re trying to find the perfect location for a corporate event or fundraiser?

Snow has fallen and Loon Mountain is open for the season. And you know what that means - the holidays are officially upon us! In a few short weeks, Santa will be coming down the chimney, the menorah will be lit, and the ball will drop for a whole new decade. The holidays are a time for lots of quality family time and there is no better place than family-friendly Lincoln, New Hampshire.
You’ve read the headlines – Millennials are just entitled, lazy, and ruining the economy because they can’t afford to buy houses, cars, or anything with so much student loan debt. But those are just headlines created to get people to click on an article. Sure, millennials are managing life with tens of thousands of dollars of student loan debt, but they are working just as hard as the previous generations to create a career that is meaningful to them and earn a living.
According to a recent U.S. Travel Association report, more than half of working Americans don’t use all of their paid vacation days. They forfeit an average of 212 million days, which is equivalent to about $62.2 billion in lost benefits. Most Americans struggle to disconnect from the daily demands of their work. Research shows that taking vacation time actually increases your productivity by making you more resilient, improving cognitive function, creativity, and problem-solving.
It’s that time of year again! The 4th Annual White Mountains Crush Festival is right around the corner, October 25-27th. Grab your friends and head to the mountains to enjoy a weekend of wine tasting, educational workshops, grape stomping, and a special wine pairing catered multi-course dinner.
Now that the heat and humidity (and the annoying black flies!) of the summer have left us for the year, it’s time to hit the road or trails again. Fall is the perfect time of year to hop on your bike for a short or long ride. The leaves are starting to turn or have already fallen, and the temperatures are still warm enough to enjoy a short sleeve jersey (the mornings are cool).
