WHITE MOUNTAIN NATIONAL FOREST STEWARDSHIP: VALUING AND PROTECTING OUR TOURISM PRODUCT FOR THE FUTURE

On Wednesday, May 3,  please join Janice Crawford, MWVCC, Joseph Phillips, WMNF and Austin Bernier, National Forest Foundation for a Customer Service seminar on dispersing traffic amongst popular hiking destinations during peak tourist season. The seminar will take place at the North Conway Water Precinct from 1:00-4:00 pm. This seminar will help our front line representatives become more confident and knowledgeable about the forest and how best to make recommendations to our visitors based on hiking skill level, amount of time a visitor(s) wishes to spend in the forest, specific sites they wish to experience, etc.

We feel that this training will go a long way in providing superior customer service while at the same time relieving the pressure that many of our beautiful spots are experiencing thus protecting them for future visitation.

The seminar is FREE and a valuable resource for training.  If you cannot send a majority of your front line personnel, please send a few who can then train the rest of your staff.

For more information or to reserve your seat, call Lisa at 356-5701 ext 300.

Kancamagus National Scenic Byway Featured in America’s Most Iconic Drives

Travel + Leisure, a well-known and trusted travel information source for adventurers young and young at heart, recently featured the Kancamagus National Scenic Byway in their featured article, titled “America’s Most Iconic Drives.” The beauty and allure of the Kancamagus National Scenic Byway is of no surprise to the people of Mount Washington Valley, but we are honored to receive such a mention.

The Kancamagus National Scenic Byway, also referred to as the “The Kanc’ by locals, is a 34.5 mile-long scenic drive along New Hampshire Route 112 in Northern New Hampshire, extending from the towns of Conway to Lincoln. The Scenic Byway takes travelers through the White Mountain National Forest, including breathtaking views of the White Mountains, the Swift River, Sabbaday Falls, Lower Falls, and Rocky Gorge. The byway brings drivers to an elevation of just under 3,000 feet at its highest point.

The byway is especially popular during the fall season, where people near and far drive the Kancamagus to view the brilliantly colored New Hampshire fall foliage, away from the modern day world. The allure of the Kancamagus Scenic Byway its freedom from modern day distractions that travelers often seek distance from in their outdoor adventures: gas stations, restaurants, hotels, or other businesses. The Kancamagus Scenic Byway is truly a scenic drive in nature, but don’t worry, modern day facilities are nearby!
