I was able to sneak out and hit the trails today to continue my coverage of the cross country areas for the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. A great late morning ski at Bear Notch Ski Touring Center in Bartlett, NH. Trails were in excellent condition – one couldn’t tell that the Valley hadn’t received snow in a month. I hit the waterfall trail again as well as heading up the hill on trail #2…more confident in my uphill abilities sans pulk and small child. The snow was sticky, which for me, was perfect. Uphills were tackled without the herringbone and filming downhill while skiing was less hairy. The Mount Washington Valley Ski Touring and Snowshoe Foundation (Whitaker Woods area) were waiting to groom some corduroy and lay track on their trail system until more snow had fallen (the word from them as of 11AM this morning).
I had the pleasure to meet some great people in the lodge (names to go unmentioned due to extreme stardom), up on vacation from Massachusetts. They brought some beautiful snow and some welcomed cheer to the area. Thanks for sharing your stories with me. I hope to see you all on the trails again. And by the way, the chicken noodle soup cooked up by Bear Notch was absolutely amazing! No joke. If you like thick noodles…it is worth the trip alone just to get the soup.
Later in the day, the weather turned a bit wetter in the lower elevations. The upper elevations should be fine. The next few days are supposed to be white again…keep your fingers crossed. I’ve more skiing to do!
