family friendly activities North Conway Let North Conway serve as the backdrop for your holiday getaway. With nationally recognized skiing, bustling outlets, and a plethora of family friendly activities, North Conway and the White Mountains make an ideal winter getaway.

Ranked among the top 25 ski towns in the world, the Mount Washington Valley is a skiers paradise. The area boasts 7 downhill areas and 6 Nordic runs. Beginners to black diamond slope stars will enjoy the trails of the White Mountains.

Starting December 27th and running every Saturday through March 7th, the popular ski resort Cranmore will be hosting Cranapalooza, a family- oriented celebration featuring entertainment, face painting, s’mores and fireworks.

Outdoor Activities:
If you prefer to enjoy the scenery without skis, North Conway has no shortage of outdoor activities. Choose from a variety of activities including snow mobiling, cross country skiing, ice skating, tubing, dog sledding and sleigh rides.

Jackson XC, a non- profit ski foundation, features unique events such as the Snowshoe Nature Tours. This 2 hour guided tour lets you experience the nature beyond the trails in an interesting and instructional way. The tours are held most Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season.

Train Rides:
Adults and children alike will enjoy festive train rides through the Mt. Washington Valley. Get in the Christmas spirit on a fun-filled ride with Santa and his mischievous elves. Santa’s Holiday Express is an hour long excursion filled with joy and laughter… and cookies with hot chocolate! Santa will even be there for pictures.

The classic favorite, the Polar Express, departs weekly for an interactive and magical trip to the North Pole via the White Mountains. From the enchanted train ride, elf led carols, the reading of the classic story to an appearance from the big guy himself, this is an experience to be remembered.

Both Santa’s Holiday Express and the Polar Express depart each weekend from the Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway. Be sure to make your reservations now, these family- friendly activities will book fast!
