Spring in the White Mountains is a beautiful experience. Not only will you get to see Mother Nature wake up from her long winter hibernation, but you don’t have to battle the crowds to visit all your favorite places. Sure, there may be a little mud here and there (and spring flowers), but don’t let that deter you from having a great time discovering all the best things to do in the Greater Lincoln area this spring. Here's a few spring bucket list ideas.
For skiers and snowboarders, winter is never long enough. It comes and goes in a blink of an eye so you’ll want to get as many days as possible on the slopes. With several long holiday weekends coming up this winter, why not book a three-day ski weekend getaway with the whole family?
There is nothing more relaxing than arriving at your home away from home and shutting the computer down after a long work week and parking the car for the weekend. The RiverWalk Resort is centered in the heart of Lincoln making it the perfect destination to make your home base. With a shuttle bus service to Loon, luxury amenities at the resort, and tons of food and entertainment options within a short walk come to the RiverWalk Resort to park and play.
Maintaining pristine ice for the nation’s only lagoon skating rink isn’t easy. It takes a team of RiverWalk Resort employees to keep the ice in tip-top shape for skaters all winter long. Starting in November, the RiverWalk’s 167,000-gallon outdoor lagoon swimming pool is transformed into a perfect sheet of ice with the help of a complex network of tubes carrying super-cooled glycol.
There is more to Lincoln than just world-class family skiing. Whether you need a break from skiing or you’re a non-skier, there's tons to do in the Western White Mountains and beyond during the winter months. Bundle up and head outside to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Strap on a pair of snowshoes and check out the local trails with your pup or hug your favorite ice princess at the Ice Castles.

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.

It’s finally here! The snow is falling and the slopes are opening. If you haven’t yet, it’s time to book your family ski weekend in the White Mountains.
The temperatures have dropped along with all the colorful leaves. The snow guns have turned on, and wheels to the chairlifts are being greased. Ski season is just around the corner! Some years we’re lucky that we’re enjoying our first turns on Thanksgiving or even before, but often Mother Nature has a mind of her own.
Hit the mountains this Halloween for an all-new holiday tradition. There is Halloween fun for the whole family. The youngsters will enjoy the festivities at the Gathering of the Jack O’ Lanterns and Silly Spooky Halloween at Santa’s Village. For the older kids and adults, take a walk through the Ghoullog at Cranmore Mountain where you’ll be sure to scream. For those who are just looking for a relaxing weekend away, there is plenty of opportunities to do that as well!
