While Tyson was off enjoying waist deep corn in the north country, Isaac and I had some good fun skiing remnants of snow with his cousin and aunts. Windblown posted they were open with some bare ground. By the time we met Heather and Jake that afternoon, the south facing trails were impassible. Rachel met […]

It was cold enough on Mt Washington to instantly turn boiling water to snow; Tyson and Brian postponed the traditional AMC New Years Eve ski down the Sherburne trail. Instead, we relocated to Windblown with our heavy equipment. We traded the epic trek of Mt Washington for hot chocolate and chowder in the lodge and […]

It snowed for the first time this season — nice snow, and on a weekend even. Saturday morning I finished the last yard work just as the world turned white. Sunday morning we woke to ~5 inches of snow. Not enough to ski out the back door like Isaac wanted, but enough for the Windblown […]

After our first noreaster, we visited the local cross country ski area, we tried the big resort in the Whites, but best of all was skiing right behind our house. The noreaster arrived Thursday afternoon. The rain line extended north west to Hollis, but in Brookline and Mason it dumped snow. 8.5″ on our deck. […]

Saturday, while Tyson went ski flying, I did chores in the morning and went over to Windblown in the afternoon to practice skate skiing again. Isaac and I did not go with Tyson because there wouldn’t have been anything for Isaac to do and I would have just been frustrated watching him. After Isaac’s disinterest […]

After going off on adults only ski trips the previous weekend, we scaled back to Isaac size trips this weekend. Saturday, my parents, Isaac and I went to the local cross country ski area, Windblown. Tyson stayed home because he was feeling sick and wanted to get a few things done. It was a nice […]

Afternoon at Windblown

November 29, 2014
Emilie Phillips

After all the fun of Thanksgiving power outages and sick kid, we made it out Saturday afternoon to enjoy the fresh snow at Windblown. Our plan was to stick Isaac in the pulk and get some exercise ourselves. Given how late we arrived, it wasn’t worth him attempting to ski, especially since his skis kept […]
