New Hampshire - you're going to love it here in Fall & Winter

New Hampshire is less than three and a half hours drive from Montreal and it’s ideal for family vacations, skiing holidays, outdoor adventure, romantic getaways and fine dining.

This week on the Travel Show our expert guest from Ski New Hampshire will answer your questions and give you the inside track on winter adventure in New Hampshire. Large capital investments continue at the New Hampshire mountain resorts – from new lifts and improved snow making facilities to additional activities like zip lines and mountain coasters. Together with these infrastructure enhancements, Canadians are delighted to discover that as the Canadian holidays are often different to the US – often when they visit, Canadians find that the resorts are not crowded.

It’s the scenery at New Hampshire ski resorts that sets them apart – this is your chance to get out amongst dramatic, steep mountains that are above the tree line in some places. And in New Hampshire the ski resorts are close together – so it is possible to add variety by skiing several different resorts from one lodging home base. Plus value conscious skiers will discover that they can take advantage of great lift ticket deals on different days in the different resorts.

There’s lots to do for skiers and non-skiers alike. Winter brings both downhill and cross country skiing - but also activities like snowshoeing, snowtubing, snowmobiling, dogsledding and the snowcat on Mt Washington. So non skiers, and skiers who want a break from the slopes, have plenty of fun activities to choose from. Non skiers will also enjoy the spas and great value tax free shopping.

Get ready for the Holiday Season with tours and events such as the “Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour”, Mount Washington Valley’s “Inn to Inn cookie tour”, “Santa’s Village Christmas Magic” in Jefferson and “Christmas at the Rocks” in Bethlehem. And it’s a great time to visit New Hampshire’s museums and theatres.

Go to for itineraries around New Hampshire this fall and winter. Discover New Hampshire’s wine, cheese and beer along your way. Fall activities include hiking and scenic drives to see the awe inspiring fall colours. There is lots of traditional Fall fun – like corn mazes, Halloween haunts, hay rides, and pumpkin festivals.

This small, diverse State offers beaches, mountains, and main streets. And with the Canadian dollar so strong - and no sales tax in New Hampshire – where better for shopping?
