Hotel for Cross-Country & Snowshoeing in Lincoln, NH
Given our slopeside accommodations on the shoulders of Loon Mountain—host to one of the best-known ski resorts in New England—it’s no surprise downhill skiers and snowboarders flock to The Mountain Club on Loon.
But we’re just as strategic a home base for those who’ve fallen under the quieter spell of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, you’ll have endless opportunities to hit those whitened trails while enjoying our exceptional hospitality.
White Mountain Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing on a Mountain Club on Loon Getaway
Besides offering its celebrated downhill trails and terrain parks, Loon Mountain Ski Resort itself is a fine place to slip into cross-country skis or strap on the snowshoes. A lovely trail network partly following historic logging roads runs from the easygoing flats along the Pemigewasset River to challenging climbs on the flanks of Black Mountain.
Among Loon Mountain’s popular wintertime activities are guided snowshoe hikes, led out of the resort’s Adventure Center.
From the expansive backcountry of the White Mountain National Forest to trail systems within numerous regional state parks, other Nordic and snowshoeing fun comes mighty easy when you’re a guest of ours here at The Mountain Club.
Ski or snowshoe along the wonderful Franconia Notch Recreational Trail, for example, which runs nearly nine miles between Route 3 and the evocative Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch State Park. Enjoy the beginner-friendly gentleness of the Lincoln Woods Trail along the Pemigewasset’s East Branch, accessed along the scenic Kancamagus Highway. Daytrip to the Bretton Woods Nordic Center, one of the biggest cross-country areas in the eastern U.S.
We’re really only scratching the surface here. Suffice it to say, you’ve got loads of options for cross-country and snowshoeing delights here in the grandest mountain range in the Northeast!
