Winter Resort Activities


Steele Hill Resort’s variety of amenities makes us an ideal destination for recreation and relaxation throughout the entire year. If the cold weather has had you hibernating the past couple months, it is time to wake up and take a trip up to Steele Hill Resort, as we offer a wide assortment of amenities and activities for you to take advantage of throughout the winter season.

Be sure to pack all of your winter gear as the resort is blanketed with snow for you to enjoy! Start your winter adventure by snowshoeing our extensive hiking trail network. Visit our front desk at the main check-in building to rent snowshoes for your whole party. Our staff will help you find the snowshoe size that best suits you and we even have little “monster feet” snowshoes for younger children to stomp around in the snow. Once you are all geared up, grab a resort trail map and choose your own adventure, whether you want to complete one trail, or connect all three for a longer venture and more difficult workout leading through the Sanbornton town forest.

Once you arrive back at the welcome center, switch out the snowshoes for your ice skates and take some shots on net at our onsite frozen pond equipped with hockey nets. Whether you are shredding the ice or practicing your figure 8, our pond is the perfect location to get some time on the ice with your family, friends or significant other. Be sure to pack your own skates or check the rentals at nearby Piche’s Ski & Sport.

Don’t forget to pack your sleds as well to enjoy a quintessential winter activity! Adjacent to the check-in office, we have a designated sledding hill that is fun for all ages. Whether you brought a toboggan, saucer or tube, plan to gain some speed down our exhilarating hill. If you happened to pack your bigger “sled” (snowmobile) then you are also in luck! We have direct access to the town and state-wide snowmobile trails right off of our property, the perfect opportunity to go explore the backwoods of New Hampshire.

Once your day of winter fun has started to wind down, take a minute for yourself and relax in our four-season outdoor hot tub. Our over-sized tub offers unparalleled views overlooking the snow-covered nearby lakes and mountains and holds a capacity of eight people to fit your whole party! Once you hop out, continue to stay warm by heading over to one of our onsite fire pits to enjoy a s’more, or six.

As always, keep an eye on our activity schedule as our activities director Nancy is always adding fun winter options including guided snowshoe hikes and campfires with s’mores!

Our resort is unique in that we offer a wide variety of amenities that you can try for little to no cost. In the summertime guests enjoy free access to our 9-hole executive golf course and this is just one of the many activities you can participate in. But when it’s a winter wonderland out and you don’t feel much like skiing, renting a pair of snowshoes offers a great way to explore the natural beauty surrounding the resort without a whole lot of skill required.

Set amongst 500 acres of New Hampshire fields and forests, Steele Hill boasts over 3 miles of trails surrounding the property. Experience a picture perfect day exploring our beautiful wooded setting on a pair of snowshoes.

Wake up in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee and breakfast from the comfort of your room, or head down to The Market for a waffle or bagel. After a relaxing morning, throw on your snow gear and a good pair of boots and head to the front desk where you can rent a pair of snowshoes for the day. Grab a trail map and head on over to one of the trail heads, throw on the snowshoes and you’re ready to go.

There is nothing quite like the peace and quiet that comes from being in nature. Whether you want to walk all three miles or just go a small distance that’s okay, feel free to go at your own rate.

Once back at the resort, hop in one of our roman spas in the West amenities building, or head out to our four-season outdoor hot tub where you can warm up from a cold winter day. Enjoy a delicious spiked hot cocoa or baileys and coffee from Tova’s Tavern for an afternoon pick me up.
