Experience a traditional horse-drawn sleigh ride while being surrounded by classic views of the White Mountains. We recommend the sleigh rides at the Franconia Inn or the Mt. Washington Hotel.

You don't have to be a skier to ride the scenic and historic ski lift at Cannon Mountain in Franconia. On a clear day, you can view four states and Canada from the summit. Or you can stay warm inside the cafe and bar at the summit station.
