There's a 70% chance of snow, and reasonable temps (upper 20s). And they're 100% open! Okay, so it's only 22 trails and 1000' vert, but still, it's a fun mountain and Butternut is great for a quick day trip. Friday it drops to sub-zero, so Thursday is the best chance to finally get some runs in.
clearly you were not paying attention in early december! Best early season riding ive seen in years. I've already got 2 new hampshire pow days logged.
You shoulda took a hike up 93 into the white mountains. you might have found some more than appealing riding. granted none of the NH mountains are 100% but for what they had open it was awesome! now after that warm snap... it may not be as nice...
Just gonna drop a little hint... NH is expecting 6-10 inches out of this storm. Soooo you might just wanna ditch butternut and chase the fresh...
