A trifecta of downhill, drives and down-home grilling in Mt Washington Valley


North Conway, NH - There are few places on the East Coast where one can ski and play golf in one day.  Top it off with one of a guy's favorite end to the day... a steak on the grill...and you've got the perfect answer for the affordable May "mancation" in Mt Washington Valley.  With seven ski resorts and six XC centers, skiing extends well into the spring. Additionally, Mount Washington's Tuckerman Ravine, the die-hard skiers dream, starts gearing up in early May, guaranteeing that skiing extends well into June in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  Thus, it's possible to golf, ski and "throw one on the barbie" all in a day in Mt Washington Valley.

With North Conway at its center, Mt Washington Valley sports eight distinctively challenging and beautiful golf courses, all within about a 30-40 minute drive, with some much closer. Together these courses offer more than 130 scenic, varied and challenging holes. You'll find that all are family oriented, and each one offers a varied schedule of programs and tournaments throughout the year.  Beautiful mountain views, challenging water hazards and gently rolling hills and greens at the various courses insure to be the highlight of your golf experience in Mt Washington Valley. Mt Washington Valley's golf courses include:

Androscoggin Valley Country Club

Hale's Location Golf Course

Indian Mound Golf Club

Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa Golf Course

North Conway Country Club

Province Lake Golf

Waumbek Country Club

Wentworth Golf Course

Beginning in late March and predicted to continue into June, throngs of ambitious skiers and boarders will flock to Tuckerman Ravine for a taste of spring skiing at its purest.  The area is undeveloped with no ski lift, so getting to the top requires the same amount of strategy, energy and courage as getting down. It also means being in decent physical condition to meet the challenge of the three-mile hike to the top with skis, provisions and gear. On a sunny day Tuckerman trekkers will witness downhill skiing and snowboarding plus inner tube sliding and sledding. Experiencing Tuck's on any mode of sliding has come to symbolize a rite of passage for many and the ultimate "mancation".  Plan to arrive at Pinkham Notch early, as parking is at a premium near Pinkham Notch Visitors Center, the starting off place for most Tuckerman Ravine trekkers.  Strap on the skis and climb up to Lunch Rocks, the natural bleachers where thousands gather to watch the ultimate challenge - a trip down the headwall.  Tuckerman Ravine skiing is not for the faint of heart.  While avalanche danger is low as of the end of April and through May and June, ice and crevasses dictate care must be taken at Tuckerman Ravine.  But the exhileration of the headwall call die-hard skiers from throughout North America every year, and with snow still in abundance, Tuckerman Ravine on Mount Washington is a skier's greatest rush.

For golfers and skiers courageous enough to boast the badge of courage at the water cooler the day after skiing and golfing in a day, a post-Tuckerman stay in Mt Washington Valley provides the perfect respite for sore muscles.  Visit for a complete list of watering holes for the debriefing and lodging or condo properties where hot showers, a working "barbie"  and a warm bed await.
