The White Mountains of New Hampshire typically get over 150 inches of snow every winter, making it one of the best places in New England for winter outdoor fun. While many people are drawn to the area for downhill skiing, there is also opportunity to trade the alpine skis in for Nordic ones and experience the mountains from a whole different view. With hundreds of miles of trails across the mountain range, there are trails for all ages and abilities.
It was just like any Friday morning. I went for my morning walk around the neighborhood. I played with Jane and Anna next door before my mom called me inside for my morning nap. I found my favorite spot in the sun by the window and curled up to catch a few “zzz’s” before the mail arrives. I woke up to my mom packing the suitcases. Oh no! I know what this means – I’m heading to the kennel.
Don’t leave your dog home when you head to the mountains this winter. There are plenty of fun activities for the whole family, including Fido, in the western White Mountains. If you have a high energy four-legged furball, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing is a wonderful way to tire them out for a day. Your pup will enjoy a good snooze by the fireplace while you enjoy a glass of wine after a fun day in the snow. Lincoln and the surrounding White Mountains offer an abundance of dog-friendly activities, so let your dog ride shotgun as you drive to Lincoln this winter.
