Adventure Concierge Update!

April 9, 2010

This past week the weather has been rainy and some sunny days but hopefully we will be having more nice days this spring and summer than last year. Skiing is pretty much over up here in the Lincoln as Loon Mountain gets ready to close for the season this weekend. Cannon Mountain has closed this past week. Now we are waiting for all the local businesses to open for the summer. Majority of the businesses will not be opening until mid-May but only on weekends. They will all be open seven days a week come mid-June. Please check with the front desk or myself on discounted tickets when you stay with us.

If you are in the area this weekend you should check out the Murder Mystery Event that is taking place. In the Village Shops at 10:00 AM on Saturday you can sign up and get all your information that you will need for the Murder Mystery. It is a full day event interviewing suspects around town and finding the clues. On Sunday morning you will continue interviewing suspects that you have not talked to. That afternoon at 12:00 PM all forms must be turned into Murder Mystery headquarters to be entered into the prize drawing. At Loon Mountain Governor’s Pavilion at 1:00 PM the Murder Mystery will be revealed. It is a full weekend of fun, laughter and entertainment.

For this upcoming week for events we have a lot going on. Let’s all just hope that the rain does not ruin any of the fun! For a copy of the Moose Report please just contact me and I will talk to you about what is going on here at South Mountain.

Happy Trails,

Good Morning!

If you were to drive through Lincoln you would probably think winter is over. In fact winter is far from over Loon Mountain still has some great skiing/snowboard available. Check out their snow report at http://www.loonmtn.com/winter/conditions.aspx.

Activities that are going on this week range from snowshoeing trips around the area to arts and crafts. Some of the crafts we are doing are picture frame jewellery boxes, decoupage plates, and gifts in a jar. That is only to name a few of them. The trails we are snowshoeing this week are the Basin in Franconia Notch, the Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch and Sabbaday Falls that is located on the Kanc.

The photo above is the covered bridge located in the Flume Gorge. A guest of ours took this photo back in the beginning of January on our snowshoeing trip.

If you are looking to see some of New Hampshire’s hidden secrets then Eric’s Everywhere and Nowhere tour is for you. He will take you out for 3 hours to show you waterfalls, covered bridges, scenic vistas but every trip is a new adventure. It’s coming up to maple sugaring season here and if you would like to learn how the process is done on Tuesday afternoons we have a trip to Fadden’s Sugar house and General Store.

If you have any questions about other events or activities that is going on in the area please just give the resort a call and ask for the Adventure Concierge!

Happy Trails!
