Tyson loves using our planes to get to an adventure. Ever since mounting the skis on the Bearhawk this winter, he’s been eyeing the unplowed Gorham airport and the adjacent Bill Hill skiing glade.

The first family AMC NH ski trip this winter went really well. We had four kids on the trip ranging from five years old to fifteen. That’s the most I have ever had sign up for a down mountain trip. I also had two solo adults signed up. At first I was worried the adults […]
