Giggles resonated throughout the woods as women shared their family’s reactions to their choice of Mother’s Day activity. The positive energy was contagious and only continued to build as riders worked through rock gardens, drops, and jumps. The freshly built Freedom Trail provided the perfect introduction to downhill as many of the women were experiencing chairlift assisted downhill for the first time.

Trail Report: 8/17

Wednesday, August 17, 2016 LIFT UPDATE: The additional anchors have been installed to the summit terminal. These anchors have increased the safety of the chairlift by approximately three times the State of New Hampshire requirement. Thank you for your understanding and patience.   Trail UPDATE: In the mean time the Trail Crew has taken full advantage of the much needed rain and some down time to get out and maintain beat up sections of trail all across the mountain.
