5 Activities You Need to Try in NH This Summer

May 16, 2019

Bummed that winter is over? Worry not! Those awesome NH ski areas you visited during the winter are always increasing their 4-season offerings. Though you will not find yourself carving down ski slopes on groomers, you'll find plenty of family-friendly adventure exploring the mountains of New Hampshire. Additionally, the summer event lineups at NH ski resorts offer something for everyone!

Swap your skis for bikes, boots for hiking shoes, and ski clothing for shorts and a tank, and you'll be ready for the ultimate summer ski resort vacation (without the snow, skiing and riding, of course).

1. Mountain & Carriage Road Biking

Revisit the joy of riding a bike this summer. NH resorts offer a wide variety of terrain from advanced single track to laid-back carriage roads. For those looking to take their skills to the next level, check out resort mountain bike lessons and clinics.

2. Scenic Chairlift Rides

The views from the top of a mountain are nothing but spectacular in New Hampshire and ski areas offer a great way to get to the summit without the work. Just get on a chairlift, gondola or tram and enjoy the beauty of the mountains on your ride up and at the summit without breaking a sweat.

3. Canopy Zip Line Tours

If you're looking for some adventure and your next adrenaline rush just look to the mountains. Play in the treetops and zip down a mountain on a canopy zip line tour.

4. Boating

Yes, boating! New Hampshire has some of the most pristine rivers and lakes in the United States. Many NH ski areas have water frontage or access to nearby lakes and rivers and rent kayaks, paddle boats, canoes, and stand-up paddle boards. Guided tours are available at various locations.

5. Golf & Disc Golf

There are many different ways to play golf in New Hampshire. Several NH ski areas offer full 18-hole and 9-hole golf courses, mini-golf courses, and/or disc golf courses.
