Scenic New Hampshire – Statewide ideas on how to spend your next New Hampshire vacation. Travel Ideas, Lodging, and year-round activities for your enjoyment in New Hampshire.

Alpine Adventures’ amazing outdoor attractions aren’t reserved for warm and snow-free weather only. As the White Mountains region is a winter fun-derland, when the flakes fly, there’s just as much to see and do there. Let’s get into all the excitement you can experience. 

Snowshoe Tours

If you’d like to stretch your legs during winter, Alpine Adventures has over 300 private acres for anyone over age ten to tour. The tours take one-and-a-half hours and are fully customized to the group’s abilities and desires. This is a top option if you’d like to see The White Mountains National Forest and Barron Mountain from a new vantage point. 

All the following are included with the tour:

  • A short off-road tour
  • The guided tour itself
  • Trekking poles
  • Snowshoes
  • Micro-spikes, if needed
  • Transportation back and forth from Barron Mountain

Tip: It’s advised that you layer up your clothing, wear boots, and bring a pack to carry your essential items so that you can take full advantage of this experience. 

Here are some good-to-knows before you go: 

  • Participants must be over the age of ten to snowshoe and must have an adult with them.
  • The standard maximum group size is eight people, but special requests can be made and accommodated.
  • No experience is required, so this is ideal for someone who wants to try a new hobby.
  • Uphill and downhill hiking is part of the experience, so be prepared to work out. 

You can book your snowshoe tour for just $49 per person.


“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads” is as true as it was in Back to the Future as it is at Alpine Adventures, because you can go fully off-road there too! 

While you can certainly take an off-road trip in summer, spring, and fall, going off-road in the winter means climbing Barron Mountain in a six-wheel drive Swiss army transport vehicle called a Pinzgauer to enjoy the stunning snowy landscape including an unparalleled view from the peak. 

The Pinzgauer can hold up to 11 people, so bringing a group is a wonderful idea!

Here are some good-to-knows before you go: 

  • Riders need to be under 300 pounds to participate.
  • Children under three are not able to ride.
  • This ride can get bumpy, even if it’s low-speed, but that’s definitely a part of the fun!
  • You should wear close-toed shoes and warm clothes in the winter.
  • These tours are good to go in most weather conditions, so plan accordingly.
  • A GoPro is recommended over a traditional cell phone for pictures.

A one hour and fifteen minute tour costs $54 per person. 

The Winter Skyrider Tour

If you’d rather go the self-guided route, Thrillsville, Alpine Adventures’ aerial course that is situated high above the town of Lincoln, New Hampshire. 

During winter, Thrillsville includes:

  • Bridges
  • Cargo nets
  • Rope ladders
  • A treehouse
  • A brief training session on how to clip and unclip the smart belay system
  • A solid introduction to aerial courses so that you can eventually progress to enjoying other more advanced ones.
