The White Mountain Report: Jan 20th, 2022
Goodness... Hard to believe but we actually got snow on Monday! YEE HA Here in the Valley we got between 7 & 10 inches and the Notch got closer to a foot. It's cool to be able to finally do a bit of XC skiing right out the back door, and be able to count on having enough liquid in the system for the ice to actually refresh for a change.

Quotes From the Ledge:
Why climb? For the natural experience; for the danger that draws us ever on; for the feeling of total freedom; for the monstrous drop beneath you. It is like a drug.

Selected Ice Conditions effective January 20, 2022
I'm finally going to set the Ice Report to a 4-pick status for the first time this season. Pretty much everything, other than the stuff that usually takes more time and some that doesn't come in all that often to begin with, is in pretty decent shape. The Amphitheater at Frankenstein is in good shape now, offering lots of options. Other than Repentance & Remission, Cathedral is good as well. Lake Willoughby over all is fat, Kinsman good, The Dike is good, and I've heard that the Flume is as well. With the fresh snow, you do want to pay attention where you are - at least till things really settle. There are some concerning pillows on Cinema, and even the Flume Cascade looks a bit iffy.
Huntington Ravine lots of options
