Sledding! Yet another sport to add to the list making New Hampshire’s White Mountains the place to be in winter!
Today was the 5th annual SledFest for the meetup Random Group of Hikers and it was a blast. We hiked up 2.4 miles up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail from the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center to the bowl with a brief stop at the Hermit Lake Shelter. We were granted a gorgeous, sunny day though a bit windy. The snow conditions weren’t ideal for sledding – icy and difficult to maneuver – but I had a great time anyway. I was outvoted when the group decided to leave and return in a few weeks for better conditions.
The grand finale sled run takes you down to the parking lot via the 2.5 mile Sherburne Ski Trail. Unbelievably great fun! Thanks to Michael for loaning me his Zipfy sled.
