Hi Folks,

This is a short Report because,Öwell because itís Thanksgiving. And while I did get out to take some pix and go for a short hike, Iíve spent most of the day with my wife and son, and now I want to drink some wine and watch Carolina beat up on the Cowboys. So happy Thanksgiving to you all. I have many things to be thankful for; my family, my music and the fact that I live up here in the White Mountain Valley, enjoying all the things that I do. I am sure you have your own and I hope you take this time to reflect on them.

2015/2016 NECLIMBS FUNDRAISER: Iíd be very thankful if you would make a donation to the Report & NEClimbs.com web site. I only ask once a year, and could use the help. I only have a few sponsors and really donít want to litter the site with ads like some sites have.

If you could, please take a minute out of your busy day to make a token $20 annual donation to support NEClimbs and the White Mountain Report. It takes a pretty good effort to get out there and take those pictures and process them every Thursday throughout the winter. And on top of that to keep you all up to date with what's happening year-round. In addition it actually takes $$ to keep the site going, maintain the weather station and the webcam. It's time consumingÖ besides, what it would be like without this weekly mailing, especially in the winter?

You can make your donation of any amount ON LINE. It's painless and you can use pretty much any credit card. Simply click the link below to make your contribution.

I have archived almost all of the Reports from as far back as September of 1999 and you can read them online at any time! The current traffic on NEClimbs.com is well over 1,000 unique visits a day, has over 1.4 million monthly "hitsĒ. This funky little newsletter goes weekly out to over 1,200 subscribers every Thursday. PLEASE REMEMBER, tho itís certainly a labor of love, it's your contribution that makes this newsletter and the NEClimbs web site possible.

THANK YOU for your continued support...
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective November 16, 2017
I got up at 5:30, grabbed some cereal, grabbed a coffee at the Frontside and headed up to the Notch to check things out. As I left town it started snowing lightly, getting heavier as I went along. By the time I got past Bartlett it was obvious that getting any really good pictures was going to be doubtful. Pulling into the Dry River Campground where I take pics of the Amphitheater, I could make out the climbs, but they were hard to really see. It was the same at the Standard Route pullout and Dracula. Further up I couldn't even see Willies Slide or anything on Mt Willard! I took pictures anyway, boping I could tweak them, but it wasn't promising. I was able to get pics of Snot Rocket and the trestle cut by pulling into the viewing area. Coming back down past Standard I stopped again and was able to get a little better shot than previously.
Huntington Ravine possible  
Repentance OUT  
Standard Route possible Click to see route picture.

VALLEY CYCLING:
The trails are still in great shape, and will likely remain that way till we get snow. That said, just be aware that there may be a little ice here and there. I was up on Rattlesnake Ridge behind the Redstone Quarry the other day and there was water all over the start of the trail. Probably by now it will be ice, so just keep your eyes open.

Mobile Version Of NEClimbs:
Up on one of the Mount Washington Valley's finest crags and want to know what that climb you're looking at is? Or maybe you're on your way up from Boston and want to check out the Ice Report for your upcoming weekend plans. Or more likely, you're at work just want to daydream about your next adventure. Well if you have a smart phone handy, you can get to NEClimbs from anywhere you have cell service. While it doesn't offer every single feature of the site and it's not an "app", in mobile form, it does do a whole lot and is very useful. Here is the live link to the mobile version of NEClimbs:
