New Hampshire has a large variety of places to do cross-country (Nordic) skiing. Some are connected to big downhill (Alpine) ski areas and many more operate as cross country touring centers that specialize in that form of skiing alone. Most places that welcome cross-country skiers also offer snowshoeing, along with snowshoe rentals and lessons. New Hampshire Parks & Recreations offers a bunch of helpful snowshoeing resources.
A few touring and Nordic centers allow skiers bringing their dog companions. At least one Nordic ski center can set you up with a skijoring harness to ski while being pulled by dogs. A good overall source of information on cross-country skiing in New Hampshire is Ski New Hampshire.
