With Bretton Woods and Loon Mountain opening up in a few weeks, New Hampshire skiing is about to kick off. As a condo owner and renter near these mountains, that is obviously a good thing! But it is also exciting since it means that I am only a month or so away from strapping on the ski's and hitting the slopes of one of the nearby mountains. And since the mountains are all updating their snow guns and their après ski activities (thanks to two solid ski seasons under their belt), this ski season, weather notwithstanding, could be a good one. The mountain's that I use the most are Attitash and Wildcat given their close proximity as well as the challenge that the latter provides (more on that in the coming week). As a side note, as I explained in “The nervous dad,” the ski lessons (and instructors) at these places are pretty good as well– Attiash is slated to open the first week of December while Wildcat opens around Thanksgiving. Loon Mountain (about an hour from our place) in Lincoln, and Bretton Woods, north up 302 (about a half hour from our place), are both set to kick off ski season in a few weeks (Mid November).
So as we head towards opening day for the New Hampshire ski season, let's start sharing some statistics so you can make an "informed decision" on which mountain to visit if your plan is to ski New Hampshire this winter. Today we start with user ratings for the mountains that you can reach from our condo within an hour, from the onethesnow.com site (I will be looking for additional review sources as well in the future). For a full listing of New Hampshire mountains, click here or New England, click here. We will attempt to follow up with more data as the week progresses and introduce a new feature simply titled "The Weather" next week.
