Bear Notch Ski Touring Center Bartlett Reviews
Unforgettable Cross Country Skiing, Snowshoeing and more! Jan 25, 2009
This was my second time cross country skiing at Bear Notch and both times it was absolutely excellent! Bear Notch Ski Center is located in the little town of Bartlett, NH just 3 miles west of Attitash Mountain on the main Route 302. The company is run out of a quaint farmhouse that is over 200 years old. The owners are very friendly and helpful taking careful time to recommend the right trails for your experience and marking them on your map. The equipment was in great condition and fit perfectly.
There is more than 65 kilometers of perfectly groomed trails. You can even go on a loop that will bring you into Bartlett town where you can take a break and have a bite to eat a Bear Notch Deli convenient to the trail. We opted for a more even terrain and cross country skiied through the beautiful and quiet woods which led us on a loop that came out along a wide river that was a stunning sight with the White Mountains clearly visible in the distance. Since this place is located a few towns outside of North Conway (the main town for visiting the White Mountains), it was not overcrowded and we were happy to have the trails mostly to ourselves.
When we were through with our adventure, we returned our equipment and the owner told us that we were just in time for their famous fresh, warm bread which had just come out of the oven. So we walked over to the snack building, located behind the main farmhouse, and entered to the wonderful aroma of freshly baked bread. There was also two delicious soups for $3.00 a bowl and various snacks and drinks for minimal cost. It was just what we needed after working up an appetite out on the trails.
Besides cross country skiing, Bear Notch Ski Center also offers snowshoeing, guided tours, and professional ski schooling with lesson/rental/ticket package specials.
