Sullivan County - Destination Development Initiative
Sullivan County Government has partnered with the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension to support a Destination Development Initiative for Sullivan County, newly identified as the Sugar River Region, and we want to hear from you!

What is Destination Development? Destination development is a long-term process that depends on strong community buy-in and participation. It involves assessing and improving visitor services and experiences and coordinating communication and marketing. The Sugar River Region Destination Development Initiative is designed to help us grow our visitor economy while improving the quality of life for our residents. 

The survey will take you 5-10 minutes to answer. Your answers will inform a Destination Development Plan for the region that will also feed into related projects: an updated regional Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) and a Sugar River Region Trails Project.

Your responses will be anonymously recorded and aggregated with others.

A Note from Arrowhead Recreation Club
Being 100% volunteer always need volunteers for winter time operations.

Outside, for lifts, tubing area operations, ski and snowboard instructors. Inside with kitchen help, concessions, ski shop, first aid, weekly cleaning and other tasks.

Also for Vacation periods need staff for some weekday periods and occasionally a few operations people for some midweek private rentals for a couple of hours.

We are looking for people to take a more active role in leadership positions as we need some new blood and enthusiasm. Don't assume others are stepping up, because they are not.

Looking to add people to the Board of Directors to include advisory help in all areas of the organization and to fill officer positions. like public relations, marketing, recruitment, mechanical maintenance, heavy equipment knowledge, grant writers, activities coordinator and anyone with a skill or who just wants to help. 
If anyone wants to learn more or would like to join us, please contact us. We also have new brochures to distribute.

On the web site there is lots on information and you can fill out the one time seasonal tubing release form, purchase gift cards and season passes.

To contact Arrowhead, FB Message us, email or call (603) 542-7016 and leave a message.
