Conditions / Re: Kancamagus Highway area to the top of the pass
« Last post by Admin Al on October 25, 2017, 01:40:09 PM »
Conditions have been great out at Greens. Lets hope the rain doesn't wet things down too much for next weekend. We are probably down to the last few weeks with the gate open. If you are going to the NE Crags on a cold day, I'd suggest hitting it early before the sun goes off. The Main Cliff gets generally more baked in the sun and stays in it to the end.

great pix Mark...

Wow Jamie, thanks for the update. I've been trying to carve a day out to get out there all season since I got the new guidebook and haven't had any luck yet.

Did they ever confirm the whole "meteor" cause? I heard that from multiple news channels.

Without having the guidebook handy to see where the Lost River Crags are the rest of the Kinsman Notch areas ok?

All other areas in Kinsman Notch are not effected_ only The Lost River Crags.
Sunday 10/22 I rode my bike around the entire Kinsman Range (Franconia_Easton Valley_Kinsman Notch_N. Woodstock_Franconia bike path_back to Franconia_38 miles), and the hill side smoke was filling the top of the notch. Several hot spots had flared up with a steady 10-15mph breeze.
