Quick Getaway to Mount Washington Valley

Mount Washington Valley New Hampshire is the perfect one tank trip and a park the car romantic getaway for travelers seeking family fun this summer and spring. Designed as a pedestrian and bike friendly area, Mount Washington is the place to park the car, and enjoy a gas-free vacation. Mount Washington Valley and the towns of Jackson and Glen are just 2 hours from Boston, a little over one hour from Boston-Manchester Airport, and 3 hours from Providence.

Mount Washington Valley is a fully-featured area with world-class skiing, golf, nationally-ranked tennis courts, a skateboard park, year-round ice arena, hiking, biking, water sports, boating, and cultural activities that range from bluegrass festivals to Shakespeare under the stars. Mount Washington Valley is a unique combination of historic town, and nature-lover’s paradise, with an emphasis on family and community that brings people back year after year.

In the 1800s, visitors came to the valley by stagecoach to escape the heat of the city and enjoy an abundance of natural beauty. These days, visitors arrive by car, winding their way along the picturesque highways on their way to a pristine 500 acres surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest. It’s a breath-taking experience–or perhaps “breath-releasing.” Time and again, visitors describe turning off the highway and heading to the valley as a letting go of the outside world and a deep-seated sense of heading home.

Arriving at Mount Washington Valley, many visitors park their cars and forget them. Activities there are, in abundance: year-round sports of every imaginable variety, for everyone from absolute beginners to experts; arts and education programs for children and adults; outdoor theater, gardening, and clubs. In Mount Washington Valley, the words “I’m bored” are rarely, if ever, heard.

Hikers have been exploring Mount Washington Valley since the 1800s, which range from easy walking paths to sweat-drenching ascents. Want a short jaunt to work off the fettuccine alfredo you just had at one of the Valley’s restaurants? Take a stroll down town or through some of the covered bridges Jackson has to offer. Feeling a bit more adventurous? Wander through the woods and wildflowers on the valley floor, or hike past the scenic waterfalls. Ready to work up a sweat? Head up the 6,000+ ft. summit of Mount Washington for stunning views of the entire valley and surrounding forests. There are trails for the brave, the bold, but certainly not the beginners at Mount Washington Valley.

If you prefer wheels to hiking boots, bring your mountain bike to the Valley, or rent one there. Once again, you can take it as easy or as hard as you like. Whether its a leisurely ride around town or a dirt-kicking expedition through the woods, you’ll find plenty of trails to suit your mood. Everything from meandering dirt fire-roads to gnarly single-track is available. With miles of marked, well-maintained trails, Mount Washington Valley is a Mecca for mountain bike enthusiasts.

Planning a Family Ski Vacation

It’s time to plan the family vacation and everyone wants to go skiing. Don’t worry, skiing isn’t as expensive as you might think, and there are numerous resorts that cater to families, offering a variety of packages designed to save you money. The problem will be choosing the destination.

Most ski resorts have websites. Start the planning process by accessing these websites to determine where you and your family might want to go. There are many different things to look for when choosing a resort. The absolute most important thing to look for is a ski school if someone in your family will need instruction. Don’t make the mistake of choosing a destination where one or more of your family members won’t have fun, simply because they don’t know how to ski.

Next, take a look at the slopes, lifts, and trails. You want to make sure that the resort has something to offer everyone in your family. If the resort only caters
to beginners, an expert skier will become quickly bored. If you have a snowboarder in your group, and there is no snowboarding park or terrain, that
snowboarder will not be happy.  While these limitations are becoming fewer, they are still out there and something a quick check of the resort’s website can fix.  There are resorts that serve all winter sports, so make sure that your families interests are covered.

Lodging is the next thing to look at. You want to be comfortable, so where you will sleep at night matters a great deal. In most cases, there is a hotel right at
the base of the slopes but this isn’t necessarily the best or most affordable place to stay. Find out what your lodging options are for the area, and choose the one that is right for your family and your budget. If you will be staying farther away from the slopes, make sure that there is transportation to and from the slopes each day!  A nice romantic Bed and Breakfast in Jackson, NH might be just the ticket for a romantic getaway!   Some lodging locations even offer ski tickets if you stay with them.  This is a great deal and nearly always will save you money!

Your family will have many more interests that you will need to search for before deciding on a particular destination and resort. Some of those interests may be dog sledding, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, or horseback riding. Resorts do offer these activities, but some don’t so be sure to ask about the winter activities, as well as the planned events during the time that you will be at the resort. This will help you plan a ski vacation that your family
will enjoy and remember for the rest of their lives.

Each team of sculptors consists of 2 or 3 members, and in order to be eligible to compete in the State Championship, team members must be 18 years or older and reside or work in New Hampshire. The winning team of the State Championship will receive a trophy and an invitation to compete in the United States National Snow Sculpting Competition, to be held at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in 2013. Our New Hampshire State Sanctioned winners for 2012 was Dick Devellian We all wish Dick and his team well as they will be headed to Lake Geneva for the 2012 Nationals representing the entire state of New Hampshire. Dick Devellian who is from Jackson, New Hampshire, have been a past winner a few times. The winners of the Nationals then go on to compete in international competitions offered by sanctioned member countries such as Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, Canada, China, Norway and Russia.

Amateurs and professionals of any age are eligible to compete in the Overall and People’s Choice Awards. Team members come from a variety of backgrounds including chefs from fine restaurants, architects, students of culinary and art schools, and various civic organizations. Sculptors from outside of New Hampshire will also be in Jackson participating in the invitational, exhibiting their magnificent works of snow art. Each team will be given a cylinder shaped block of snow 4 feet in diameter by 8 feet tall to create their snow sculptures. Most of the teams will start sculpting on Friday, January 28th and continue working through the night on Saturday to complete their sculptures in time for the judging on Sunday afternoon January 30th starting at Noon.

We recommend that you come and see the entire process of the sculptor taking a very blah cylinder of snow and sculpting it into an amazing piece of art frozen in time.

Video Interlude

This is a great short video exploring the Fryeburg Fair from 2011!! We’re thrilled that many of our guests, up here for a Romantic Getaway,also made it over to the fair and reported an amazing time with great food and attractions!!

The fingerprints of the Mount Washington Valley are on the Stanley Cup. Helicopter pilot and Valley resident Steve “Speedo” Cheney arranged for a quick detour with The Cup while transporting it to an appearance in Maine. Delaney’s owner Dick Delaney and Valley residents who got wind of the event were able to touch the most iconic trophy in sports, currently the property of the Boston Bruins.
