Was up at BW this past weekend. Real cold all three days (each day started below -4F one day -37 with WC). High Pressure system in the area keep the big storm of the weekend from reaching up this far North. Snow that was groomed was fast and wide open, was there on a Thr, Fri, Sat. Clear skies all 3 days led to great views of Mt Washington and the Cog RR. Not typical you see the peak 3 days in a row.
Tough natural light after 2:00pm, low sun due to shortest days of the year.
BW was a little misleading with percentage open and terrain open. Some trails "open" hadn't seen snow natural or man made in a while, and hadn't been touched by a groomer seemed like all season.
Can tell they are trying like crazy to open more terrain, fired up another quad on the Sat. to move people and opened a few more trails. Guns are on 24/7.
Some real great trails for kids or adults to learn on.
Staff is courteous and friendly, can tell they are still getting up to speed for the season.
Overall, Good 1st weekend to shake out the rust and warm up for the season. Sure they'll have more open soon.
