    This guy has visited the track a few times...scroll through his blog and you'll see the others.

    There were lots of posts about this on the ski forums this year...but I didn't believe how big it was until I saw this post...

    Thanks, can't wait to check it out. That will create some interesting ski opportunities on the west side of the mountain for years to come. On top of that it might take decades to recover (if ever) since once the path is laid it will tend to keep sliding.

    Thanks for the post Chris; this is my first trip to seek the peak and first hike in the White Mountains. I will be solo on this trip and have been eyeing Lions Head. What is the reason for leaving so early at 3 AM? It that to get some good sunrise views or to beat the crowd...am I seriously underestimating the rigor/length of the hike?

    I appreciate your input...looking forward to the trip!

    it is to get up above the tree line for some good morning pictures ,we did go that early so we did not have to rush back down to make it for the dinner and also there is a very slow person hiking with this group
    that would be me i do it to give the others a long time to take pictures thats what they think dont tell them i have a hard time with breathing and need to take it slow

    Thanks Charlie! I like the idea of getting some good pictures early; provided the kick off party dosent go too long into the night ;-)

    What Charlie said. I left @ 3am last year so to get some pics and be back down to make it to the party. I also have my flags from last year that I will have on. Thanks Diane for making them for us.
