View Full Version : Equinox on the Solstice

Hit the Blue (Burr & Burton) Trail from the Equinox Hotel parking lot with Tramper Al at 9:40 AM on 12/21 in 8-10 inches of light powder over ice, barebooted the whole way, finished in about 15 inches of powder at 3:30 PM. Few blowdowns in the upper half but nothing bad. Blazing was sparse near the top leading to some weird routefinding, but still pretty straightforward. Windy up top! Very nice hike as an alternative to a longer BW in New Hampshire. The drive there and back was the toughest part. Welcome winter!
