Snowmobiling in Gorham

Some friends and myself will be going snowmobiling this coming weekend (leaving from Gorham) and I was curious if it is possible to snowmobile from Gorham to Franconia Notch and back in 4 hours while having some time to stop and enjoy the sights?

I would also like to know if there is anywhere we can stop along the way for some good food and a cold beer.

Not sure if there are any snowmobile enthusiasts who are regulars. Would suggest contacting one of the snowmobile clubs. . or get a trail guide. www.trailsource.com/scripts/three.asp… Given that the trip is an hour by car, I am pretty sure that 4 hours round trip is probably pushing it

There's certainly some great snowmobiling in the Gorham, Twin Mountain area. Not sure if you can get to the notch and back (and stop for lunch) in 4 hours. Best to check directly with one of the active clubs along the way. http://www.twinmtnsnowmobile.org/

Biggest challenge is going to be conditions. As of yesterday (1/11) there wasn't enough snow to ride this area. A storm is expected today which may change that, but never now how much until it ends.

If you make it to the notch, you can stop at Cannon Mountain for lunch. There's a simple cafe/restaurant at the Tram station. May not be everything you want, but would hold you over.

Find out if there is enough snow, the north country has not gotten as much snow as the southern half of the state so far this winter. It is snowing again here right now, adding to the 14+ inches that fell last week.
