The White Mountains is one of our favourite places in New England. There is always something to do regardless of the season. And let's be real, the views of the mountains never gets old. With mild temperatures on the forecast for the weekend, we decided to head north and enjoy some winter hiking and cross-country skiing in the Whites ("whites" indeed as there certainly was no shortage of snow).
New Hampshire is home to a network of over 150 mountains where the majority of which have an elevation greater than 3,000 ft. The White Mountains range alone covers around a quarter of New Hampshire where many of these high peak mountains are located. And while there are plenty of opportunities for downhill skiing in this area we decided upon cross-country skiing at the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation, which boasts of being home to the best cross-country skiing area in New England.
The White Mountains is one of the best places in New England to enjoy the great outdoors. Especially in the fall when the leaves are changing colour. This mountain range encompasses about a quarter of the state of New Hampshire and a portion of western Maine. Every fall thousands of tourists flock here to experience some of the best fall foliage New England has to offer.
