Heading to The Balsams in March

We are thinking of taking my in-laws up to the Balsams for a weekend in March. Any thoughts on if there is enough going on for them in that area in winter? They do not ski or ice skate.

Hmmm... they grew up in Florida....so they are not used to the snow like I am. I was trying to expose them to new things, but I'm afraid they will just sit inside all day. Do you think that it might be better to take them in the fall?

In all seriousness, are they adventurous? Is this something that they have suggested? A winter weekend at a place like the Balsams or MW Hotel is a wonderful way to spend a winter weekend but just not for everybody. Certainly fall or summer makes it easier to get outside and there is a lot to do. During the summer, there is great summer stock theater all over NE,Tanglewood, lake experiences from canoeing to excursion boats on Lake Winni, a gondola ride to the top of a number of mountains and on and on, all of which can make for a great experience.

I would love a week-end there, but I snomobile, crosscountry ski and walk in the cold. If they do not like that stuff then a different time of year would be a better chioce. It is still cold with alot of snow on the ground in March and since there is nothing else close by to do or go you might be stuck inside.
