In summer, with stubborn patches of gleaming snows still clinging to her summits, the White Mountains offer visitors a variety of scenic attractions and an unlimited array of outdoor activities. Some 50 alpine lakes and 800 miles of cold, crystal clear rivers and springs draw visitors throughout the season to this mountain playground.
Autumn is for many their favorite season, when the land and its inhabitants prepare for the coming snows. The White Mountains offer a change of colors to rival any in the nation, with the added pleasure of relative solitude. Wildlife is abundant, trails serene. Hunters and fishermen enjoy spectacular sport, and hiking and sightseeing are at their best.
In winter, visitors to Pinetop-Lakeside enjoy sledding, tobogganing, ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and of course world-class downhill skiing and snowboarding. Miles of groomed trails and first-rate facilities, such as Sunrise Ski Resort, draw winter-sports enthusiasts from around the world.
Spring, too, is a special time. Frozen lakes and streams open themselves to fishermen (some of the best fishing of the year can be found in spring) boaters, hikers, and sightseer’s. Meadow grasses turn green and wildflowers dot the landscape; as the earth rejuvenates, so does the spirit.
