I had the pleasure of visiting Red Hill Ski Area on their opening day of the 19/20 ski season for my NH Talls & Smalls Adventure. I have been following the Red Hill Ski Club on Facebook and was excited to read they would be open, as most of the smaller...

The Kanc is a tiny local ski hill owned by the Town of Lincoln, and operated by the Lincoln—Woodstock Recreation Department. I feel so fortunate to call Lincoln my second hometown and I visit this area often, at the amazing discounted resident rate of $5...

Today was a gamble on conditions from the aftermath of varying temps with thaws & refreezes. 12/27-12/28 I absolutely would not have skied anywhere in the state! Conditions where slick, iced, and calling it “dust on crust” would be far too generous...

Today we visited King Pine Ski Area in Madison for our NH Talls & Smalls Adventure. Neither Tim nor I have skied here before and were excited to check out another new mountain. King Pine is part of Purity Springs, a family owned resort with an inn...
Growing up in NH and raising my family here is pretty meaningful. Our tiny state is beautiful from mountains to shore. We have a wealth of outdoor recreational activities available year-round, and winter by far has always been my favorite season. I first learned to ski at Highlands...
Hi all- been a while since I've posted but I'm here & stoked to plan my 19/20 season! I am mixing it up this season & decided as a NH girl its time to fully ski every alpine area big & small in the state. I have full freedom, not tied to any season passes, and creative ideas to maximize...
Hi, I could use some info about winter driving in the Whites. Specifically, I will be living in East Haverhill this winter, which is to the west of Mt. Moosilauke. There are a ton of ski areas "nearby," but as someone who hasn't yet spent a winter in the region, I'm not sure what roads are...
Yesterday a man died in an avalanche in Ramond Cataract near Tuckerman Ravine. Raymond Cataract is located northeast of Tuckerman Ravine and is between it and Huntington Ravine.
Longtime Mount Washington Valley climbing guide Rick Wilcox:
"Raymond Cataract is a very narrow ravine, he said...
yup. but not by me....Our camp director joined one of our mountain trips and lugged his ski stuff up the ravine trail, booted up and made something like 6 turns. I am jealous!
He is not so sure that it was worth the effort, but did have a smile on his face when telling the story...
@MattSmith posted here some info here about Tuckerman Ravine.
Question: who would be interested in a Tuckerman Day? Open to all... Hiking up to the base of the ravine ("lunch rocks") and soaking in the spectacle can be a very fun day if you don't feel like lugging ski gear all the way in...

· Stowe or Smugglers Notch
· Sugarbush or Mad River
· Catamount or Jiminy Peak
· Hunter or Windham
· Bromley or Magic
