Inn keepers work hard all winter with the dream of Spring skiing coming our way. The slopes are empty and we often get many sunny and powder days to enjoy! This week was a banner week for Innkeepers Nick and Mimi from the Bartlett Inn for New Hampshire Spring Skiing! Where did we have our adventures? The week started with snow and rain and snow and ice. We snowboarded Cranmore North Conway NH on Tuesday and what a perfect choice. As the day warmed up the conditions were awesome with semi firm corduroy. The views were spectacular at the top with trees sparkling like diamonds in the sun. Wednesday we snowboarded at Bretton Woods NH.
Bretton had only 2 beginner lifts open Monday and Tuesday due to the ice storm but Wednesday they managed to open the top lifts and Rosebrook Glades lift! These are the best glades in NH because they are not too steep or tight so intermediate skiers and boarders can have a lot of fun without chewing on bark!. Since the lift had been closed until Wednesdayno one had skied the powder in the glades so we enjoyed the day cruising through the trees. There was a thin layer of ice in between snow so there were some pretty spectacular wipe-outs but no injuries other than pride!! WE learned fast not to cut to deep but just ride the top powder and it save us a few cartwheels. Thursday started out awesome with 6 inches of powder at Attitash Ski Resort in Bartlett NH. We arrived early and snowboarding was better than skiing as my wife has the older skiis and they do not perform as easily on powder. But by the end of the day a light mist of rain was falling, the powder had been packed down and skiing was a blast with soft bumps everywhere to give you air and land safely! Another couple inches of snow last night and now it is raining lightly. The NH Ski and Cross Country Ski Resorts plan to groom tonight once the rain stops and Saturday should be an awesome day for Spring skiing in NH! Come on up! Give us a call and you can follow the Spring ski deals with Two for 1 at Cranmore, Bretton Woods and Cannon Mountain Too. Attitash has Thursday 17 March 2011 St Patrick’s Day Lift Tickets for $17!
