March Powder: Photos to Jump Start Your Weekend

March 16, 2018

We know as soon as the calendar hits March, you're thinking of spring skiing. Pond skims, 80s days, goggle tanning, and beautiful corn snow to rip through in the sunshine. Mother Nature had other plans in mind, as she typically does in early March.

You see, New Hampshire's ski areas have received anywhere from two to over five feet of snow in the last two weeks. It's downright wintry, and there's more snow on the way next week. Here are 13 photos to help elevate those stoke levels this weekend. Make your plans now.
