Today, as we do every year at this time, we have returned to the Balsams Grand Hotel. This is the ninth year we have continued this tradition and I hope that we can do to for many years to come.

The Balsams is one of those now rare grand mountain hotels that were once much more common – back when life moved at a slower pace. Built around 1860, we stay in the ‘new’ wing which opened in 1910 or so –

Situated on fifteen thousand acres in Dixville Notch New Hampshire – Staying here at this time of the year is like living in a snow globe. For us it is a two and a half hour drive from home but once here we feel like we are a contenent away. It is a nice drive through Grafton and Dixvill Notch proper.

We were able to check in around 1PM today, drop our bags and change up for a quick ski.

It was cool with an air temperature of around four degrees Fahrenheit and a brisk 10-15 knot wind.

The rest of our trip will be cross country skiing, snowshoeing and enjoying the fine dining –

Wish you were here..
