Hoffman Notch Ski - 3/24/18

Skied Hoffman Notch from the south as far as Big Marsh. Snow coverage was very good with classic spring conditions - icy snow transitioning to wet snow. Stream crossings and numerous blowdowns were challenging, but overall it was an excellent early spring ski trip.

It's a nice trip, makes you feel like you're farther from civilization than you really are.

Nice! I had hoped to check it out this year....maybe next year. How were the trail conditions....well broken out, post holes? Nice set of tracks?

There was a snowshoe track most of the way. Conditions were good once it warmed up enough. The first downhill from the parking lot was really ice when I started. The biggest problem was getting around all of the open streams and wet areas. It was difficult in a few areas with skis. There were no significant post holes. Someone barefooted for a while at the start, but they did not cause too much damage to the trail.

I was in there the afternoon before. I was short for time and only made it to the trail from Hoffman Road.
