New England was hit with freezing temperatures and heavy snow this week, leaving many to wonder: when will winter be over? Well, spring temperatures won’t be here any time soon. Here are just a few of the best ways to beat the arctic funk.

It goes without saying — New England is one of the premier places for skiing and snowboarding in the United States. And there are several world-class ski resorts just a few hours’ drive from Boston. Loon, Sugarbush, Stowe, Killington and Bretton Woods are just a few sprinkled across Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, you’re sure to find a slope that fits your speed.

If downhill isn’t your thing, you can also find several cross country ski facilities and trails across New England, including Jackson Ski Touring in New Hampshire, which is one of the country’s largest cross-country and snow-shoe centers. And the winter sport fun doesn’t stop there; you’ll also easily find sledding, inner tubing, snowmobiling and more.

For something really special, the Ice Castles in Lincoln, New Hampshire are worth a visit. These artificial ice castles are complete with slides and lights, making them fun for family members of all ages.

For a cosier activity, staycations in cosy New England country inns, visiting sugar houses to see how maple syrup is made and sleigh rides all make the list.
