Conditions at Bear Notch Ski Touring and Snowshoe Trails is fantastic. Yesterday we snowshoed about 5K and it was beautiful hard packed right out the back door of the Bartlett Inn. Today Innkeeper Nick took me on a 10 K cross country ski. We started from the Bartlett Inn where the trails are snowshoe flattened. It was beautiful for the 15 minutes to the groomed Bear Notch Trails. There was 2 new inches of very fluffy powder and it was still snowing with the sun coming through the trees. Just a beautiful day. Felt warm skiing but was actually only 15 and kept the skiing nice and fast. Took trail 40 across Bear Notch Road losts of hills up and down a good challang. Then to Trail 30 relatively flat with beautiful views along the Saco NH River and back. Saw some fox, deer and moose tracks and some very tiny cute mouse tracks too. It took us just under 2 hours to complete the 10 K loop. Enjoying some soup now to recharge and then time to start the taxes! Come stay at the Bartlett Inn and enjoy all the great Nordic skiing available in Bartlett, Jackson and North Conway and Bretton Woods New Hampshire.
