  1. Full story from the Conway Daily Sun. This guy was a big deal in the MWV. He's a legend at Wildcat and around the Valley.

    Proposed bike path

    The Rt 16 bypass has long been stalled, but there is a new proposal to use the right of way to build a new bike path from Walmart to Cranmore. That sounds like a fine idea! The town could really use such a path. http://www.conwaydailysun.com/newsx/132080-rec-path-group-pitches-bypass-corridor-route-to-councilor-kenney

    Are you in the MWV?

    It will be nice to have a thread to post when you're in the valley. This should allow us to meet up for a beer, activities, or merriment. I'm at the Moat right now. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  5. The 2017 Saco River kayak trip is brought to you in conjunction with Makusue Ski and Sport Club. As a bonus feature, we'll have a mini-golf outing in the late afternoon following kayaking.

    No parking near Diana's Baths

    The Conway selectman really know how to be friendly to tourist who represent the lifeblood of their economy. For several months now they have been pounding their first demanding that the state ban parking on West Side Road near Diana Bath's. Now they are getting their way: http://www.conwaydailysun.com/newsx/131144-nhdot-agrees-to-post-diana-s-baths-road-no-parking One of the most popular tourist attractions in the valley is about to get a whole lot less accessible. The article barely touches on the real issue which is the parking lot being far too small.

    Whitaker Woods

    They are doing some construction in Whitaker Woods. They have closed the path that leads to McGraths and Stonehurst. Has anyone heard what's going on there?
  8. I am hosting a MTB weekend at my ski club in North Conway, on August 12th & 13th. We will be riding single track in the valley. Areas could include redstone, cranmore, black cap, pudding pond, bretton woods, sunday river, attitash, echo lake, and the mineral site. We will make a group desicion based on the skill level of the group. All levels welcome. I will split the group if needed. Bikes with suspension are highly recommended and if needed can be rented at Red Jersey Cyclery in North Conway Village. You can stay at my club, details below or meet us at the house each morning. We will likely do grill dinner together and have a big breakfast at the house. About the club: Guest fees are $25 per person/per night. Randolph Ski Club is a private ski club nicknamed "the big red house" located in Intervale, NH. The house has 6 rooms with bunk beds and a large loft with both bunk and regular beds, a kitchen, grill, and living room. You will need to bring bedding, towels, tolietries, clothes, etc...
  9. I have been talking about 10 straight months of New England skiing for a long time now, this past Wednesday I was finally able to accomplish it. Research showed there was likely enough snow to make some turns in right gully. Wednesday morning I decided to pull the trigger and go for it. I was a bit short on time so I decided to hike down from the summit rather than up from Pinkham. It was also a much prettier hike. No wind and perfect temperature made the 60 minute hike down feel like a breeze. The only challenging part was getting down to the snow from the lip of the ravine. Once I reached the strip of snow I was rewarded with a surprisingly consistent surface which offered some really awesome skiing. Per usual the Tuckerman Ravine trail was packed with people so I had a bit of an audience. Some people cheered, many just thought I was totally crazy. The hardest and scariest part was getting up on the snow and getting my skis on. Skiing was actually really nice, offering about 150 feet or so of continuous skiing with a quick exit to skiers left. Long hour and 40 min hike out was not much fun but in the end I felt the whole trip was very worth it even for a couple runs! Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Saco River trouble

    There have been a string of river accidents this spring. In the latest accident, a 38 year old woman is presumed drowned after her canoe capsized in Fryeburg. When police responded, their jet boat collided with an obstacle and two officers had to be airlifted out. One remains in critical condition. This comes four weeks after someone drowned on the Pemi.
  11. Lovely day for a trip up the autoroad. Higher summits forecast had the weather taking another turn for worst later in the day so hauled up the MWV as quick as I could. I took the autoroad to summit and found it fully in the clouds with bit of a wind. After a quick trip the visitor center I headed down to a less popular spot just a bit before the 7 mile marker a bit north of the main snowfield. A quick ten minute walk and I found my spot. Skiing was pretty nice, a little ice in places due to the freeze way up there but mostly it was perfect spring corn. Four laps and I was done. Definitely worth the time and effort for 9 straight month of east coast skiing.

    Best of Mount Washington Valley

    This year's winners have been announced. Some reactions... Best Women's Clothing: T.J. Maxx -- Ummm, right. Best Ski Shop: Stan and Dans's, Runner-up Bob and Terry's, and 3rd place Ski and Snowboard Liquidators. Ummm, no Sport Thoma. Sad! I was surprised to see Rosie's in Tamworth as the best restaurant overall. I've never been there. I think I agree with all the bartender ratings. But I am upset to not see Linda from Wildcat on the list.
  13. I hiked Mt. Kearsarge on Saturday. What a great little hike with a fantastic view. The trail head is at a state park, so it was $4.00 to enter. The parking area has a kids playground and picnic benches with roof built over them. They do have bathroom's however they were still locked for the season. I went up the Winslow trail and down the Barlow trail for a nice 3 mile loop. Once at the top it was a beautiful 360 view.
