From February 9 – 11, 2012 Dartmouth will host its Winter Carnival. Held since 1911, this winter fun time was ranked 6th in the world by National Geographic Traveler. You can support Dartmouth’s ski teams at both the Dartmouth Skiway and the Oak Hill Ski Touring Center on February 10 & 11. You can take a tour of the Baker Hill Library Bell Tower on February 11 & 12. You can combine those activities with concerts, great food from local eateries, a tour at the Hood Museum and a visit to the Green where an enormous snow and ice sculpture awaits. And then there is the Occum Pond Party on Saturday, February 11 from 12 noon to 3 pm. Don’t miss this part of the winter bash with games, food, music and sleigh rides for all ages – the only prerequisite is to be young at heart! Only 7 miles from the Dartmouth Skiway, Breakfast on the Connecticut is right in the thick of some of the best competitive collegiate skiing. Come back in the late afternoon for hot chocolate and goodies while you get ready for the evening’s fun. To enjoy winter you must find a way to play in it – here is your chance at Dartmouth’s Winter Carnival, 2012!

Situated just north of Hanover in rural Lyme is one of New Hampshire’s hidden treasures – the Dartmouth Skiway, home to one of the nation’s elite collegiate ski programs. With 104 skiable acres covering two mountains, 30 trails and ample terrain to satisfy every level, the Skiway has been referred to as “the essence of a family ski area” by the Boston Globe. You will find the modern McLean Lodge the perfect place for warming up between runs, getting a bite to eat or just relaxing. But the real draw for me – no long lift lines and adult lift tickets at half the price of the Skiway’s big named cousins – $40 per day weekends, $25 weekday. Two and one half (2 1/2) hours from Boston, MA and Hartford, CT, the Skiway beckons. Stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut and get a $10 discount on adult weekend tickets.
