Alpine Adventures, the award-winning adventure destination best known for its zipline tours, is adding a new adventure opportunity for winter lovers of all abilities. Its new backcountry snowshoe tours offer an exciting off-road ride to a high-elevation snowshoe trailhead and a guided snowy walking tour in the heart of the White Mountains.
The two-hour excursion begins at the organization’s headquarters, where guests, outfitted with snowshoes and poles, climb aboard a 6-wheel Swiss Military Pinzgauer, for an off-road trek up Barron Mountain. The one-mile hiking tour begins near the summit, where snowshoe guides complement the adventure with information about the local wildlife and logging history of northern New Hampshire. The walking tour weaves its way through the trees, out onto ledges offering spectacular views of surrounding peaks and under many active zipline courses, concluding with a cup of steaming hot cocoa around a warming fire at an outdoor fire pit.
“Transporting our guests up Barron Mountain in our off-road Pinzgauers not only makes for an exciting ride up, but makes it easy to enjoy the incredible views of the White Mountains afforded by this high-elevation hike,” commented Jeb Boyd, CEO of Alpine Adventures. “We are excited to add another way for visiting families and friends to create lasting memories with this fun and exciting outdoor winter adventure.”
Backcountry snowshoe tours depart daily at 11:30am and reservations are required; the cost is $59 per person. Personalized private tours for small groups, including evening moonlight tours, are also available.
Alpine Adventures is the first, largest and most award-winning zipline and adventure destination in New England, with three separate zipline courses, off-road tours, aerial adventure park, BigAirBag Stuntzone and new backcountry snowshoe tours.
