    Default Bretton Woods is supposed to open tomorrow

    Anyone going?

    I might take a jaunt up there, get a few turns in. First day always sucks, not just because of conditions of the mountain, but my physical condition

    And it's a good excuse to take some nice shots of Mt Washington from across the valley.

    Hope it is not as windy tomorrow as it is today. We have solid whitecaps on the lake today.

    Hmm....how much does skiing on ice cost? On how many trails? I think I'll pass.

    $39 for 4 trails open and 2 lifts.

    Just got some new bindings today but having issues with them (K2 Cinch) so guess I won't be riding tomorrow, need to go back to the shop and have them help me tweak these buggers (I was about to throw them out the window tonight, and getting angry while holding a big screw driver is not good)

    Only to be a status symbol. Take the lift up, walk to snow, ski, skis off, walk to bottom of mountain. Mmmm, fun. Totally worth the $80!

    I could argue that nothing in New England is worth the price even with 100% open

    According to the photos link on their website, they opened today for a bit of complimentary skiing.

From the letter of my Great Uncle, Samuel Willard (accompanied by my grandfather Henry), to Governor Dummer on August 16, 1725, explaining the reason for his return, being instructed to "range all the country", of the Wawobadenik (White Mountains) July 19-August 16, 1725. I am a 13th generation New Englander and proud of it.
