Snowboarding Bretton Woods

It was a solo venture to Bretton Woods today. A windy, cloudy day turned out to be beautiful, calm, and full of sunshine! The snow conditions were the best I'd seen this season.

Hiking Up and Skiing Down

Could not make up my mind today - hiking or skiing. So I did both. I fastened my skis and boots to my backpack and headed for Pinkham Notch. Arriving at the parking lot the thermometer was reading 8 degrees with a stiff wind blowing but there was plenty of sun and blue sky. The estimated wind chill value was -10 to -15 below zero. There were plenty of people ignoring the cold and either hiking or skiing up the Tuckerman Ravine trail. I strapped on my pack with skis and took off!
