Time to get out your skis and snowshoes? Then it’s time to visit this vibrant valley
If winter is a time for you to celebrate and get out your cross-country skis or snowshoes, then you need to head to the Androscoggin Valley, where folks share that feeling. Head out onto miles of perfectly groomed trails, or strike off the beaten path into fresh powder for an exhilarating backcountry experience. Immerse yourself in nature (look for tracks of deer, foxes, rabbits and other creatures) and in fresh air. You have plenty of places to choose from, offering a variety of terrains for every age and skill level. Check out the amazing views (and welcoming warming hut) at Milan Hill State Park, meandering paths through fields and forest at Bretton Woods Nordic Ski Center and groomed trails and well-marked backcountry trails at Great Glen Trails.

This network of about 12 kilometers of challenging groomed trails is operated by a club as a non-profit. This is hilly skiing. Grooming is done by volunteers, but there is no sweep of trails at the end of each day. Prepare for wind chill at the top of the hill
