Considering a family outing before the thaw? Omni Mount Washington Resort, which apparently has the longest zip line in all of New England (who knew?), might be a good place to consider.

Set amid the snowy peaks of White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire, the 200-room historic resort has a whole slew of "winter wonderland" activities that you just can't do in your own backyard. Ideal for adventurous families, the list includes Alpine and Nordic skiing, snowboarding, canopy tours, snowshoeing, dog sledding, ice skating and, yes, historic sleigh rides through the woods.

One of the country’s oldest, most historic hotels will soon change hands. As of Sept. 1, the Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, will add Omni to the front of its moniker.

The luxe 365-room New England resort opened in 1902 at the base of Mount Washington, the Northeast’s highest peak, and has notably hosted Thomas Edison, Babe Ruth, and three U.S. presidents. Recently the resort finished a multi-million-dollar restoration and renovation project, which includes a new spa, conference center, and outdoor pool complex.

We are suckers for a room with a killer view.  We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.

There's only one thing better than a snow-covered mountain view out of a hotel room, and that's this killer view: a framed snow-covered mountain view out of a hotel room, and said hotel room is in the Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire.
