Mini Winter Vacation

A few weeks ago we took some time off from work for our annual winter vacation.  This year we stayed local (New Hampshire) as the best snow conditions have been here at home on the east coast.  We also kept it short (4 days), so that we can spend time on a kitchen rennovation at our chalet later in the year.

We warmed-up with two days of cross-country skiing on the high-level trails in Jackson (near Prospect Farm & Hall's Ledge).  We finished up with a day of snowboarding at Attitash Mountain because we drive by frequently but we had never been there to 'board before.  In between these activities we explored the snow/ice carving competition that was being held in Jackson near the town park. The competition took place over several days and nights, and was quite amazing.  A few photos below show the highlights of our trip.

 Just getting started...
