Axe Throwing

Adult Axe Throwing

Adult Axe Throwing takes place daily from 9:45 am - 11:00 pm.

Part of Our History

Amongst the variety of activities offered at the Mountain View Grand, axe throwing is one of the most popular. The Dodge family, the founders of the resort, had owned a lumber mill and were heavily involved in the logging enterprise, which was a large part of Whitefield’s industry in the 1830’s. Axe throwing helps guests stay connected with that part of the Mountain View Grand’s history, while providing a unique and thrilling experience.
