Let them brag about their black diamond trails and handsome Slovenian ski instructor. You’ve got functional hamstrings and a face free of goggle tan lines.

But just because you’d rather skip skiing, doesn’t mean mountain towns aren’t worth visiting. With plenty of attractions and distractions at ground level, and even a few epic non-skiing adventures on the mountains, there’s never been a better time to head to the hills.

Below, five local mountain towns worth planning a vacation around — even if the only ski lift ticket you’ll be buying is a hard pass.

North Woodstock, NH

North Woodstock, New Hampshire Ice Castles
Handout

Feel like a kid again wandering through the impressive maze caves, fountains, thrones and more at the Ice Castles attraction (above), which upped its game this season with an enchanted forest walk. Toting actual rugrats? Wow ‘em with a horse-drawn sleigh ride or arrive in the evening when the castles are set aglow by twinkling LED lights as a fairy-tale soundtrack plays.

Post up at the Woodstock Inn Brewery (from $117), and book a brew tour before sidling up to the bar for a seasonal beer and otherworldly mac and cheese made with their flagship ale. If you’re craving more of the great outdoors, the inn is centrally located to several hiking and snowshoeing trails. this Granite State Valhalla is six hours from Midtown.

Roxbury, NY

The Roxbury at Stratton Falls (above, from $139) is a new collection of wonky cottages and themed guest rooms situated on private grounds with the property’s namesake waterfalls. After you make the three-hour trek from the city, you’ll be rewarded with antiquing galore in the tiny villages of Delaware County.

Another favorite pastime that will keep you off the hook and lifts of Plattekill and Belleayre mountains is Table to Farm Tours. These group excursions give you access to farms and farmers with tales of the region’s history and folklore along with plenty of stellar grub.

Should you choose to forsake bites for bookworminess, drive 25 minutes to Hobart and peruse the shelves at Hobart Book Village.

Middlefield, Conn.

Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort Interstellar tubing
Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort

Rally up your friends and give nighttime Interstellar Tubing a whirl at Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort (above). Exactly as great as it sounds: Toboggan at high-speeds in an eight-lane complex with bright glow lights and music. Recover with s’mores on a tabletop campfire or clam chowder and mac and cheese — do you see our priorities here? — at the Fire at the Ridge restaurant.

The next day, embrace your alpine soul snowbiking (rentals available at the resort) or head to Lyman Orchards to get swing-happy in the golf simulator bays.

If you don’t snag one of the eight rooms at Powder Ridge (from $95), stay at the historic Inn at Middletown (from $186) in neighboring Middletown; you’re only two-and-a-half hours from home, but you’ll feel eons away from the din.

Lake Placid, NY

February marks 40 years since Lake Placid hosted the 1980 Winter Olympics, and they’re ready to make this season just as rollicking, even if there’s no torching Russia on the hockey rink.

After you’ve cruised for five hours straight up I-87, check into Mirror Lake Inn (from $179) where you can take a ½-mile bobsled ride and skate on the oval where Eric Heiden secured five gold medals back in ‘80.

Or, if you don’t wanna join ‘em on the slopes, watch ‘em: Scope out jumpers and aerialists doing their finest tricks on the ski jump at the Olympic jumping complex by taking the scenic Skyride gondola and glass-enclosed elevator up to the observation tower 26 stories high.

For a dose of zen, kindly proceed to the Winter on the Wild Walk, a trail of bridges suspended over the treetops, at The Wild Center in nearby Tupper Lake, followed by a restorative visit to Lake Placid’s Adirondack Foot Sanctuary — a shrine to all things podiatric.

P.S. To mark the Olympics anniversary, the town will host a 10-day celebration, Feb. 13 to 23, with games and events galore.

Cornwall, Conn.

Home to the Mohawk Mountain Ski Area, powder prohibitionists will discover much diversion with Covered Bridge Electric Bike Rental’s fat tire e-bikes, ideal for snowy conditions. Zoom through bucolic countryside, discover hidden ponds or simply relish an awkward third Tinder date, all about two-and-a-half hours from the Big Apple.

Make a pit stop at the West Cornwall Covered Bridge on the lolling Housatonic River for winter fishing or a walk in the woods, or up your beatnik quotient with a tour of Cornwall Bridge Pottery (and buy a gift for the folks back home). Lodge at The Litchfield Inn (from $129) in nearby Litchfield, with the amusingly named Tavern Off the Green restaurant. We hear the karaoke parties can be a hoot, so pace your pints accordingly.
