Spectacular Day on the Slopes of Attitash

With beautiful weather in the forecast it seemed the perfect day to ski and ride on the slopes of Attitash. So along with son Brandon we threw the gear in the vehicle and took off to play in the snow. There was plenty of packed powder and powder to enjoy along with a cloudless blue sky, sunshine and no lift lines. The cold temps kept the snow conditions firm and we were able to ski on trails that are normally not open due to lack of snow but lots of ice. I captured the day in photos and videos. Enjoy!

Snowshoeing to Mount Chocorua

With no firm plans for a hike this weekend I got an invite from fellow hiker Jill to join her and four others for a hike to Mount Chocorua (3,475'). The plan for today was to hike the Champney Falls and Piper Trails up to the the summit. The weather called for cold temps and increasing clouds with an approaching storm due to arrive late afternoon.

Snowshoe Hike To Lonesome Lake

Today I was looking for a short snowshoe hike to a beautiful spot with a great view. Short being the key word for a number of reasons, the first being the sub-zero windchill, then there was the late start with an hour drive, and probably the best reason was that I used up a lot of leg power yesterday skiing in powder at Bretton Woods. Lonesome Lake seemed to be a great destination to try out the winter gear today as well as condition myself to some frigid weather.
