Spring Ski Specials are alive and well at the Bartlett Inn. This week in Bartlett NH and Attitash Resort Area we have had over 16 inches of new snow.  The ski conditions for downhill skiing and cross country skiing are the best they have been all season in Bartlett.  Innkeepers and the kids did venture out to Bretton Woods on Sunday afternoon and found that even thought it is only 16 miles away the other side of Crawford Notch NH in Bretton Woods and Bethlehem did not get blessed with the same snow as Bartlett this week.  Best place to ski this March as of today’s conditions downhill Attitash Bear Peak in Bartlett NH and for Cross Country Bear Notch Ski Touring.  (BTW Bear Notch has Dog Friendly Ski Trails and The Bartlett Inn has dog friendly Cottage Rooms!)  For our Spring ski deals we take as much as 20% off room rates and couple it with $5-$28 discounts on lift tickets.  We have free xc and tubing tickets for Great Glen Trails in Pinkham Notch which also have good snow conditions right now.

Guests at the Bartlett Inn in Bartlett New Hampshire this first weekend in February 2012 gave such great feedback on ski conditions at the NH Cross Country Ski areas and the NH Downhill Ski Resorts that we thought we should let all the skiers out there know so they do not miss out on skiing this winter.  We had guests come stay and ski with us from Vermont, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, Southern NH, Maryland and Florida.  Even though there is little snow in Southern New Hampshire, Vermont and most of New England, Bartlett NH, near North Conway NH, has great snow!
For Cross Country skiing in New Hampshire Bear Notch Ski Touring had the best conditions followed by Bretton Woods and Jackson Ski Touring in Jackson NH. For alpine Skiing the best skiing feedback from guests was for Attitash Ski Resort in Bartlett NH and Bretton Woods NH.  Even thought there is no snow in your backyard…give us a call in Bartlett, White Mountains of New Hampshire.  Wehave plenty of snow to enjoy and great ski deals on both midweek and weekend skiing!  Call 1800 292 2353.

Bartlett Inn NH Bed and Breakfast Snow in Winter

Snow Day Bartlett NH

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.

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!

Cross Country skiing in New Hampshire from the Bartlett Inn

Come

Waterfalls NH Bear Notch Cross Country Ski Trail

 up to Bartlett New Hampshire and get some fresh air – The Cross Country Ski Conditions are pristine!! Today was the 1st day we used our season passes for Bear Notch Ski Touring to Cross Country ski on the Bear Notch Bartlett New Hampshire Trails.  Conditions were awesome!  Soft packed powder allowed us to stay in the perfect tracks up and down hill.  Trail 2 was very nice! The waterfalls, rivers and brooks are only half frozen so you can enjoy the babbling sounds and the crystal clear water views.  The perks of midweek skiing include the fact that you will probably not see anyone else when you are out skiing!  Today we only saw 1 other couple!  Bear Notch Cross Country Skiing is close to Bretton Woods NH and North Conway NH too.  The Bartlett Inn has trail access right out our back door.  The first few hundred meters are a fun powdery back country ski until you reach the groomed trails. This is also one of the few dog friendly cross country ski trail networks in New Hampshire. A very convenient place to stay is the Pet Friendly Bed and Breakfast and Cottages of the Bartlett Inn. I recommend this trail system any day of the week.  Stay at the Bartlett Inn midweek Sunday through Friday for 2 or more nights and we will give you 2 Bear Notch Cross Country Ski passes free! Just mention this blog entry! ( You can also snowshoe at Bear Notch and rent cross country skiis and snowshoes for a very reasonable price…least expensive place in the area!)  I recommend this trail system any day of the week!
