The Greater Lincoln area is home to two world-class family-friendly ski mountains, but skiing isn’t the only winter activity you can do in the area. It’s time to bundle up and head outside to explore the winter wonderland.

Snowshoeing and Cross-Country Skiing with your dog in NH

Posted by Katelyn Michaud on Jan 4, 2019 9:04:59 AM

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.
