Franconia Village XC Ski Area
1300 Easton Valley RD
Franconia, NH 03580
Franconia Inn, Lovett's Inn, Horse & Hound Inn, and the Pinestead Farm Inn developed and maintains a system of over 65km of trails. Most of the trails are single track in width that wind through the woods, over brooks and across meadows. We feel our system of single tracks give the skier a close feeling with the forest, whereas, the larger double track commercial touring centers do not. Our Touring System is possible only through the use of our neighboring property. Please respect private property and stay on the marked trails. Air Field Trail is easy, marked, groomed and tracked for 2.50 km, Bear Run is very difficult, marked, groomed and tracked for 4.50km, and Beaver Bend is easy, marked, groomed and tracked for 90km, and there are 21 more trails like these offering you the best xc skiing in the area. We also feature a smooth ice skating pond, a packed and fast sledding hill, winter horseback riding, and sleigh rides, both of which require a reservation by calling 1-800 473 5299. We have a full service ski shop and a Skiers' Lunch is available on weekends & holidays.
Cross country ski center and trails are open from mid December to mid March. Horse drawn sleigh rides and ice skating rink are open mid December to mid April.
