  • Explore the backcountry on a one-of-a-kind adventure—from a dog sled! Muddy Paw Dog Sled Kennel has over 100 sled dogs rescued from around the country and given a place where they can do what they love best—sledding. With an experienced musher take on the best trails and freshest snow in an interactive adventure that can last anywhere from 2 hours to all day. Enjoy hot chocolate, treat the dogs to snacks, and see New Hampshire in a whole new way!

    See Santa and feed his reindeer at Santa's Village. While Santa's village is open year round, it's especially wonderful in winter. At Christmastime Mrs. Claus greets guests and holidaylights brighten the evenings. This family friendly classic is great for all ages and has been operating for over 60 years. There's even a new 3D show this year called a "Tinkerdoodle Christmas" that is sure to delight.

    Conway Scenic Railroad trains are a great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the White Mountains from a cozy vantage point. In addition to the usual Valley Train route, there is also Santa's Holiday Express running weekends through December 22nd, featuring Santa, his elves, hot chocolate, and cookies for everyone!

    Ice Skating in Schouler Park is super convenient, right by North Conway Village and the train station where the Conway Scenic Railroad departs. There is also ice skating at the Ham Arena, where the Mount Washington Valley Skating Club is based. See their "Holiday on Ice" skate show as part of the Christmas festivities and tree lighting ceremony December 7th, or take a lesson for adults or children from the club's coaches. Whether you're a first timer or a seasoned pro, there's a lot of fun to be had on the ice.

    There's no shortage of snowmobiling and skiing in the North Conway area. Many places you might have enjoyed hiking in the spring or summer have a totally different view in winter with the leaves off the trees and the countryside blanketed in snow. The extensive areas surrounding the Sacro River right across the street from the Green Granite make it easy to head out on an adventure and get a whole day of exploring in via snowmobile. With 7,000 miles of trails in the area, you're sure to have plenty of scenic routes to travel. As for skiing, the many mountains in the area have slopes suitable for many skill levels and lessons for those who have never tried skiing or snowboarding, as well as those who simply want to brush up since last season.
