Welcome to Winter!
North of the Notches is a snowmobile paradise with trails groomed in the Northern White Mountains and Great North Woods by the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association. NHSA is an association of independently incorporated snowmobile clubs, working together as a unified voice to speak for the sport of snowmobiling and to promote it as safe family recreation. The clubs groom the trail corridor network in NH and connect with lodging facilities.
