There are easily accessible and interesting x-country ski and snowshoe trails, with rentals and lessons, a fun sledding hill with tube rentals, fat tire bike rentals, a snow coach up... More

FABULOUS trails that are easy to follow. There are maps with the very helpful "You Are Here" feature, which makes it considerably easier to follow them. The equipment we rented was in good shape, the employees were very helpful, and the cost was very reasonable. We will definitely be back.

We bought season passes at Great Glen for years, but our employment changed and we had to stop buying passes. I think it's been 4 or 5 years since we had skied at Great Glen but when we walked in and saw Howie, Paul, Nate and Sue, they greeted us like we'd never stopped going there! They have great customer... More

Climbing Mt Washington by snowcoach is certainly a great way to go up the mountain, especially in the winter. We were lucky with the weather, no clouds or wind. We rode comfortably in the coach as it ascended to 4,000 feet. The mountain vistas were breathtaking! The Presidential Range was laid out before us to taken in and enjoy their... More

Every worker at Great Glen during my recent visit was very helpful. When you pull into a new ski area, after possibly driving for hours to get there, you just need a little help to get oriented and out on trails. Great Glen is friendly. Trails were well-groomed (for a week day) and trail signage is OK. But views from... More

Brought the family here to do some tubing. I had close to no options for snow tubing anywhere in the area because we only had a weekday to play with. The workers here are extremely polite and seems like everyone loved their jobs. We had the entire tubing hill to ourselves and the tubs were high quality, fully inflated and... More

The conditions for skiing here were excellent when we were in this area. We skied here for three days. First two days condition were hard packed, however the trails were groomed well. The last day we had a few inches of snow and it was snowing lightly while skiing which made it beautiful. We skied in powder which was super.... More

Monitored the weather reports for a sunny day and lucked out getting a reservation on Jan 31st at 9am online which gave a $5. discount. Tour guide was Dave who was very knowledgeable with history and highlights of the tour on the way up and down. Rode co-pilot on the way up for a birds eye view. With only 6... More

Great Glen Trails was really the reason why we came to visit Jackson, NH. I was trying to set up our trip to somewhere in NH, and I couldn't figure out where to go. I googled snowshoeing and found Great Glen Trails. They not only had snowshoeing but htey also have XC skiing and a tubing hill and a snowcoach... More
