Spring in the North Country

Spring is a season of change

Spring in North Country brings bluebird skies and an opportunity to enjoy winter activities longer than any place in NH. We welcome the change of season a little later than most, setting a perfect stomping ground for those that love the snow. Ride your sled well into April and maybe even May, where elevations maintain several feet of snow and the valleys start to welcome the signs of spring. Maintain tradition with a visit to a sugar house when sap is running. What a beautiful contrast to experience.

Things to Do

  • Spring snowmobile riding brings a whole new excitement to this season. Go North for Spring Break
  • Maple sugaring signals the start of Spring. A true North Country tradition passed down through generations. Sap flows when daytime temperatures rise above thirty-two degrees and nighttime temperatures fall below freezing, sometimes starting as early as mid-February and ending once the trees bud. Stop by on Maple Weekend to take a tour and experience it for yourself.
  • Snowshoeing in spring is a great way to get out and enjoy the milder temperatures.

  • Spring landlocked salmon & trout fishing typically starts just after ice out when smelt start to spawn, which is typically early May.
  • Foraging for fiddleheads in early to mid May.
  • Memorial Day Weekend – Ride The Wilds trails open for ATV enthusiasts!
