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.

Good News Cross Country Skiers
Looking for the superb cross country conditions? We have them!
After receiving 113" snow so far this winter, we are currently receiving wet snow and sleet. To this point we have a net gain of about 1.5". Dress for the weather and skiing will be OK. Once this event stops and temps drop, we will be out grooming fresh tracks and skate lanes. This storm will groom out very nicely. Skiers can expect a silky trail surface.
