    Same here, regarding weight and the Denali Evos and the tails. But, I do use the tails a bit more than rarely for deep snow.

    Regarding the road, someone more local than I can chime in on that road and its accessibility, but if I recall correctly, it's a gated forest road that starts out as the road to the Moat Mountain...

    I've not skied the trail, but can tell you that a good portion of it at lower elevation -- before it gets all climb-y, about where it crosses the old forest road [that passes by the gravel pit, a bit...

    Parking at the Seven Dwarfs is $10 -- there's a small (4-5 vehicles?) plowed area immediately across Little River Road from the motel. Leave the money on the windscreen.

    That is a very long drive just to hike the Priest -- can't say what the Three Ridges are like, because when we last were in that area, the Priest coupled with nearby Crabtree Falls seemed much more...

    It's just under 2.5 miles on Haystack road -- from Route 3 to the North Twin Trail trailhead. I believe that the route via 7 Dwarfs and snowmobile trail (Lower Haystack Bypass) is about half that...

    Exactly. You should have decent powder this weekend. Any snow that falls on Saturday evening through Sunday morning should be decent, too, with the cold temps keeping it that way. Warm-up (for what...

    Since you'll be in the Jackson area (eventually), why not try one of the skiing/snowshowing trails in nearby Carter Notch?

    The Jackson Ski Touring Foundation's web site has plenty of information...

    Fascinating -- and thank you for this.

    Yes, perhaps -- but as someone who has made quite a few trail signs (or paid for others to make them) over the years, I think that they're very reasonably priced, especially given the time and effort...

    Yes -- it helps eliminate food waste. Better to sell it to someone who will eat it instead of bin it and cart it off/down the mountain.

    Thank you for this review/recommendation -- would much rather repair something that still has life in it, than toss and replace.

    (I might do a night hike, as well, for sunrise somewhere.)

    Thank you for the heads-up.

    Looks like Northern Pass, in its current incarnation, is toast -- the NH Supreme Court just upheld the SEC opinion to not re-hear the project.

    Notwithstanding the most recent Forest Service maps, I believe that the Rainbow Trail is pretty much right on the boundary -- the few times I've been on that trail, the boundary markers are on trees...
