The latest MMSC NH Trail Conditions, from our groomer operators and local Alton riders. Everyone is invited to e-mail in their own observations!

“Use this report at your own risk, conditions will change with weather, etc. Lake Winnipesaukee ice conditions are not monitored!”

Help keep the trails smooth! If you know the trail well, ride wide to avoid a concave trail. Try to avoid blowing holes going up hills - get some speed so you almost coast up! Try not to blow the snow off of corners - even if you are a hot dog rider, it is possible to ride fast and smooth on the throttle and brakes! Please pass the word to the newbie riders!
