New England Heritage: Skiing And Snowboarding Trips

New England has long been one of the top skiing and snowboarding destinations for years. With cold temperatures, high mountains and tons of snow it’s a no brainer. Besides there’s really not much else to do in winter. So every weekend and school vacation in the winter folks from all over flock north to the mountains of Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire for winter sports fun and some R & R. But we can’t leave out the local destinations like Yawgoo inour own backyard of Rhode Island and of course Wachusett, Nashoba Valley and Blue Hills of Mass. All great spots for some skiing and snowboarding action. After a day of hitting the slopes everyone hits the bar inside the lodge to warm up and un-wind with a beverage or two. Naturally in New England they must have New England’s own Narragansett beer. So here is a list of some bars and ski lodges that proudly serve Gansett.

In New Hampshire:
Loon Mountain
Bretton Woods

In Vermont:
Mt. Snow
Killington (visit JAX Food & Games)
Okemo (visit The Loft Tavern)

Better yet, this year our friends at Bean Snowboards designed some awesome custom ‘Gansett snowboards. Check out the photos of those below and remember to say, “Hi Neighbor, Have a ‘Gansett!” when flying down the slopes this winter.
