New Hampshire
We are about halfway through the 2005-06 season. December's weather gave us a great start to the season and January's weather challenges have kept snowmakers and groomers on their toes. Fortunately, this week's forecast calls for cold nights, and some small storms to help refresh the slopes. Over the past few years February and March have been when we've received the most snowfall. Keep the faith and hopefully we get crushed with snow over the next several weeks!
Super Bowl Weekend
Believe it or not we won't be watching the Patriots win another Super Bowl this weekend! The good news is that traditionally Super Bowl weekend keeps alot of fair weather skier and riders home, which means fewer people at your favorite NH downhill and XC areas. The game doesn't start until after 6pm on Sunday, so it seems silly to bag the whole weekend. Along with the Super Bowl comes specials at several ski areas, and parties scheduled through the weekend in honor of the game. Check out the link to our deals and events planned for the weekend!
With the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino just around the corner, it's time to do your homework on local talent that will be going for the gold. Among the NH athletes headed to Italy are the US's top hopes for gold in both cross country and downhill events. Kris Freeman from Andover, NH leads the cross country squad's efforts. On the alpine side we have that guy Bode Miller who isn't too bad either. Ski new Hampshire

Into racing? ... Worth a look !

Pinkham Notch, NH ? It has been snowing at Wildcat Mountain and the mountain is now back to 90% open. Wildcat received 5-8 inches from Sunday night's storm, another 1-2 inches overnight on Monday, and continuing light flurries into Tuesday. In fact, the forecast calls for a chance of snow every day this week. This adds to the 7-10 inches of snow Wildcat received last week.
and has the cumulative effect of rapidly improving conditions for skiing & riding. On Monday Wildcat opened 15 trails, and so is now open for skiing & riding on 41 of Wildcat's 47 trails. The conditions are powder and packed powder, with variable and thin cover areas on the all-natural snow trails. Grooming is on about 75% of the open terrain, and Mountain sources report that Wildcat has been receiving very positive feedback from skiers and riders on trail grooming, and the overall skiing "shape" of the mountain all season long.
For Events on the weekend February 4th & 5th Wildcat will be hosting an Apres Ski Party sponsored by Sam Adams on Saturday Feb. 4th. Entertainment will be provided by live DJ Brian Sparhawk, who is known for interacting with customers by playing hilarious games and having plenty of prize giveaways. Wildcat

The world is inverted, and I've lost count. Powder days are threatening to outnumber their snowless brethren. 12 inches of heroic possibility this morning, so forget the snooze button. Click on the headlamp, amass your gear, fire up the car, down an extra coffee or two or three, and slot yourself in line. With the bases as high as they've been in recent history, the mountain is primed and waiting. Don't hesitate. This is what we live for.
