WednesdaySki 9:30 am at Bretton Woods and ThursdaySki 9:30 at Bear Notch

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 and Thursday, February 23, 2017

The ski conditions are amazing and it is warm and sunny and feels like March and April Spring Skiing!! WOW!!

Can anyone join me tomorrow, WEDNESDAY at Bretton Woods Nordic? It is 2-fer day on Wednesday. They have had almost everything groomed this week, including Mountain Road and High Country Trail. Meet at the Bretton Woods Nordic Center Lodge at 9:30 am ready to ski. Bring lunch and snacks to eat in the sunshine on the trail or at the hut at the top of the T-Bar lift.

For THURSDAY, let's do Bear Notch. They have been grooming the far eastern section off of River Road (Yates Farm Trails) and the trails that lead to Attitash Ski Area.

We can do a fun one way route with a shuttle car(s) parked at Thorne Pond. Meet at the Thorne Pond parking lot at 9:15 am. (Thorne Pond is located on the north side of Route 302 across from the Bear Peak Ski Area Parking lot). For those of you (Steve!) that live in Bartlett Village-Stillings Grant, just meet us at the Bear Notch Ski Touring Center Lodge (no need to drive out to Thorne Pond).

I am in CT, my Mom needs some care after being in the hospital briefly.

I know you are getting even more snow!  So the skiing continues to be amazing!!

How about if you meet again at JacksonXC for a ski out into the fresh snow?  Meet at 10:00 am, in the lodge, ready to ski. Check out what has been groomed. It might be limited due to time required to groom all the deep snow, but you can ask at the front desk for what is being groomed for you!

I will see you next week!!

JacksonXC at 10:30 am in the new snow!

Thursday, February 9, 2017

Thursday's forecast is for temps the teens and snow arriving in the morning.

How about meeting in the JacksonXC lodge, ready to ski, at 10:30 am. This will give us time to shovel the driveway, clean off the car and allow the temps to warm up a little bit.

We will choose a good route for the day depending on the grooming report, maybe a one way down the Ellis or a one way North Hall-new connection to Maple, then Keeney back to the lodge?? The snow should be perfect!!!

JacksonXC 10:00 am

Thursday, February 2, 2017

I will be off in VT this Thursday to ski. I have spoken to a few ThursdaySkiers who plan to ski this Thursday, so I am posting a ThursdaySki to keep the tradition going!!

Looks like excellent ski weather for the next few days. Snow coming in tonight!!

Meet at the JacksonXC lodge, ready to ski at 10:00 am. Choose a good adventure depending on the grooming report of the morning.

I look forward to seeing you the following week!  I hope to be able to set that Thursday for a ski at Bretton Woods!!

Bear Notch Epic, 10:00 am

Thursday, January 26, 2017

WOW, I just came in from an amazing day of skiing at Bear Notch!

It was excellent, miraculous actually, considering yesterday's weather forecast and the nor'easter that we had. We had more snow than expected, and anything else that came down else solid and could bounce. All perfect for adding to the good base already out there.

Let's meet at Bear Notch Ski Touring, in the warming barn where the soup and bread are served. Park in the back behind the barn. Be there ready to ski at 10:00 am. I have a 2-fer coupon and I have some freebies that I will use for your tickets. We can do pretty much all of their trails, the main event being the loop that goes across Bear Notch Road to the Pine Forest trails and return via Bartlett Village and the Saco River Trails.

Should be really nice!

JacksonXC at 11:00 am

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

The skiing today in the snow was like gliding over silk!  Tomorrow's forecast look OK, warmer than today, above freezing with a small possibility of rain mid morning.

Let's avoid that possible rain and meet a bit later than usual, at Jackson Ski Touring at 11:00 am, in the lodge, ready to ski. The skies may clear in the early afternoon. Bring a lunch or snack to eat on the trail.

We will check what is groomed and make a decision on what to ski. Even the ungroomed is excellent, so we may not be limited by grooming. My first preference is to do the Ellis River Trail one way from the Rocky Branch parking lot if possible.

See you there!

The forecast just does not look good for a ThursdaySki this week.  Let's hope the snow pack is thick enough to endure the forecasted rain/sleet event.

See you next week!!
