This is where we post daily ski and snowshoe condition reports for Bear Notch Ski Touring in Bartlett, NH - in the heart of the White Mountains. With 65km of trails set in a hollow at the base of Crawford Notch, we get consistently more snow than just about any other XC ski area in NH.

After receiving over 100" snow this winter.
We survived Friday's warm temps and rain very well.
Once the snow drained we were out grooming through out the day, with both renovator and tiller. The result is a very nice trail surface. We are grooming for quality over quantity. We have 35KM freshly groomed today.
Loose granular- powder mix trail surface on a 28"- 54" base.
