Be sure to "know before you go". While many guidelines related to covid-19 have been relaxed as cases continue to decline and the rates of vaccination continue to rise, it’s important for guests and visitors to be aware that many businesses will continue to have safety procedures in place as well as have modified operations for the summer. We recommend that you learn about these changes as part of your planning process, and invite you to visit Ski NH’s COVID-19 Consumer Resource Page to learn more. By being educated and working together, we can keep each other safe and provide more opportunities for all to get out and enjoy all that New Hampshire has to offer.

If you're looking for some high adventure and your next adrenaline rush just look to the mountains for your next adventure. Play in the tree tops, zip down zip lines and ride a mountain coaster, where you control the speed of your ride. 

Many of the Ski Areas offer:

Guided Fly Fishing at Bretton Woods

Experience fly fishing in one of New Hampshire's most scenic and pristine fly fishing destinations. Try your hand at angling the Ammonoosuc River or any of a number of local rivers and streams, take a casting lesson, indulge in a four-hour guided river adventure, or try your hand at Tenkara - the Japanese method of fly fishing.

Our custom Guided Fly Fishing River Adventures will allow you to test your skills on a classic New England trout stream located on the Omni Mount Washington Resort property. In the shadow of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range, you and your guide will explore the local streams and ponds in search of the famed rainbow trout and native brook trout.
