Attitash Snow Board

Powder Day Attitash SNow Board

Innkeepers Nick and Miriam at the Bartlett Inn NH tested conditions yesterday; it really is part of our job!  We skied (actually snow boarded) at Attitash just 2 miles east of the Bartlett Inn on US Route 302.  It was nothing less than spectacular!  There was about a foot of new powder from Thursdays snowstorm in New Hampshire and we snowboarded Bear Peak in fantastic conditions ungroomed powder on many of the trails.  It has already snowed another 3 inches this morning and still coming.  The White Mountains of New Hampshire often get snow when most of the rest of New England gets rain or less snow.  Come enjoy Spring Skiing at the Bartlett Inn located close to Attitash, Bretton Woods, Wildcat, Cranmore and Black Mountains.  We have great Spring Ski NH Deals saving you on the room and the lift tickets so call 1 800 292 2353.

Mt Washington Auto Road New Hampshire

Mt Washington Views with Bartlett Innkeepers in NH Foliage NH

What better than a sunny September day to take The Bartlett Inn’s Summer Employee (Ozgur from Turkey!) on a sight seeing day and where better than for a ride up the Mt Washington Auto Road in Pinkham Notch NH.  We like the sign that says not a good road to drive if you have a fear of heights at the beginning of the road!  A little frightened we put the truck into 1st gear and went for it!  What can we say…spectacular views at every turn and the top too! We enjoyed lunch at the canteen and the museum in the bottom of the observatory.  One perk of driving up is that you are not limited by the time of the returning coach or cog train.  There are many hikes that can be done from the top too!  On teh way back to the Bartlett Inn there is nice short hike to Glen Ellis Falls off Route 16 .

This is the first post in Bartlett Innkeeper Nicks series Adventures in the White Mountains of NH: Winter.  Share my wilderness experiences as I tell about my hikes in the White Mountains of NH!

 I went on a beautiful winter hike on 27th January with two friends of mine Matt and Greg. We went on the 19 mile loop trail  ( only 7.8 miles round trip) in Carter Notch Jackson NH – the trail head is just above Wildcat Ski Mountain. The trail was in great shape and we didnt need crampons or snow shoes . I Used Crampons on the way down as I was going solo. Met the Hut master Mike who was studying Pine Martens. The views around the hut looking at the Wildcat mountain and on the other side Carter Dome were spectacular. The lake was frozen and the ice was over 3 feet thick so I felt very safe crossing it. There are a few small exposed areas where you will feel the wind and temp drop – apart from that – a very protected trail. To see more pictures and details of our hike go to the Bartlett Inn Facebook page and become a friend .The Bartlett Inn  near Jackson NH is a great base to go out winter hiking.  Greg and Matt stayed at the Bartlett Inn Wednesday night to charge up and then spent Thursday night at the Carter Notch Hut and returned to refuel at the Bartlet Inn and do more day hikes with the Bartlett Inn as their base for Ice Climbs  at Cathedral Ledge, North Conway,  NH and Frankenstein Cliffs Crawford Notch NH.
