We enjoyed fantastic conditions Saturday Cross Country Skiing at Bear Notch Ski Touring in Bartlett NH near Attitash and Bretton Woods. We usually do not get out on Saturday as that is the Bartlett Inn Bed and Breakfast busy day but most of the guests were out early enjoying the great snow conditions at all the local Ski Mountains Attitash , Bretton Woods, Cranmore, Black and Wildcat too and Jackson XC Ski Touring . We made tracks through the trail behind the inn that is ungroomed (except by us). It was gorgeous 18 inches of powder. Our neighbor had tamped down some of the trail with his huge snowshoes so it made that section easier going. In 10 minutes we were passing the brook and then onto Bear Notch groomed trails. Never crowded, we only saw a few other skiers and most of them were the guests staying at The Bartlett Inn. It was a perfectday, bright blue skies, immaculately groomed trails..both good for track and skate skiing. The snow bridge across the river on trail 2 to trail 5 is now open so you can do a nice loop up trail 5 and then past the water tower and down 5 and round back to trail 6 to the Bartlett Inn connector. This week we plan to go out and do the other side of Bear Notch Road. We will post pictures. Cross Country Skiing or Nordic skiing is a well kept secret. If you have not tried it and like downhill skiing and hiking then give it a go. You will love accessing remote areas, rivers and great views during the winter months and the price is about 1/4 of a downhill lift ticket. $14 bucks on the weekend and we also offer midweek deals with discount and always free passes to Great Glen trails in Pinkham Notch.
