Balsams Wilderness Jan. 31 2017

Postby raisin'heel » Tue Feb 07, 2017 2:27 pm

Took a trip up to Balsams (Dixville Notch, N.H.) Jan 31. Maybe 8" pow on top of solid base (crust), 2' - 3' total? Some icing underneath with great pow in woods and trails, some trees bent down in places. BUT, the place is posted against entering, and snowmobiles had rutted up most of the downhill trails. The ski over to Dixville Peak was the highlight for me (BC / hiking trail from Balsams summit), where, except for parts of the route on major snomo trail, there was untouched powder and views from the new windtower development there. There may be access via the snomo trail on both sides of Rt. 26 to mountainous terrain and former xc ski trail system, Balsams, and Dixville Pk.; also there is the Table Rock Trailhead @ Balsams that possibly could be utilized?
