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.
Drove back into NH after a few days in NY this week to the beautiful scenery of sugary White Powdered Mountain Tops in every direction. I could not believe I also had the priviledege of seeing a full grown Blad Eagle with its immature offspring! Their wingspan was enormous and the white head and tail feathers were so bright! NH is full of natural wonders! We have gotten 18 inches of powder this week on top of the existing 2 foot base making for awesome cross country skiing at Bear Notch, Jackson NH, Great Glen Trails Pinkham Notch NH and Bretton Woods NH. What else ..go enjoy the powder at Bretton Woods Nh they have the best glade skiing in NH and it is in great condition with all the new snow!

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.
We drove jsut 2 miles down the raod from the Bartlett Inn NH to Attitash Moutain NH. That 1 foot of snow this week made for awesome conditions at Attitash Thursday. We skied from 930 – 330 all day and could not get enough. The conditions are amazing packed powder which made for fun skiing and boarding down even the steepest runs at Attitash in Bartlett NH. Our guests went to Cranmore in North Conway NH and Bretton Woods just 20 minutes up the road from the Bartlett Inn and said conditions everywhere were powder and packed powder. Come visit the Bartlett Inn and get discounted ski lift tickets to all these New Hampshire Resorts. Conditions are great! 1 800 292 2353
