The snows of winter linger into April in the Androscoggin Valley. Hit the slopes for excellent spring skiing and snowboarding on a day tickled by warm breezes and an astounding robin’s egg-blue sky overhead. And don’t put away your snowmobile just yet — plan a last, leisurely tour along our snowy, wooded trails and open sun-kissed fields to wrap up the season. The warm days and cooler nights also signal one of spring’s sweetest pleasures, as maple sugaring gets underway in sugarhouses all across the region. Sugar on snow followed by a sour pickle is a highlight of this season of new beginnings.

Maple Madness is a Real Thing
From mid-March to early April, the sap rises in the maple trees and smoke wafts from the sugar houses as boiling gets underway. Pay a visit and sample some of that sweet goodness. We guarantee you’ll be back for more.
Spring Peepers Sing a Song of Love
Spring peepers and their unmistakable song are a harbinger of the season. These small frogs live near wetlands and in early spring they set up a mighty nighttime chorus of song that some have described as sounding like sleigh bells. Only the male frogs participate hoping to attract a mate, and their song signals spring in the Androscoggin Valley like no other.
Late April marks the beginning of the year for anglers as fishing season opens. Drop a line in the Androscoggin River and angle for some brook, brown or rainbow trout, salmon, and small mouth bass.
Tune up your rigs and head out on Memorial Day Weekend as the 1,000+ mile interconnected Ride the Wilds ATV trail system across northern New Hampshire opens for the season. Click here for ATV rentals.
