Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing Area

Welcome to Southern New Hampshire’s Premier Cross Country Ski Area. Since 1972 skiers from all over New England have been returning each year to ski their favorite trails at Windblown. Here in what Thoreau called “The Front Range”, on the beautiful high terrain at the gateway to the Monadnock Region, you will find 40 kilometers of trails with a variety to please every member of your family. We take special care to provide exceptional grooming, the highest quality rental skis and snowshoes, and a family-friendly handcrafted Base Lodge with healthy food and pleasant wood-heated spaces. We hope you take the short drive to discover our scenic trails that undulate and curve with rhythms and landscapes that say, “Ski me one more time”.
