Yeah I think that's it !
And the ski is good there ^^ Good to know ! :D
You have to walk up if you want to ski Mt. Washington. It's a great thing to do in the spring. Look on youtube for skiing Tuckerman ravine.
Here's a website of committed backcountry skiers who are up there all the time. http://timefortuckerman.com/
If you aren't familiar with back country skiing, go with someone who knows what they are doing, and go in the spring on a beautiful cloudless day.
People die skiing this mountain; it's not just another hill. Here's a good video:
If you want to ski regularly while riding a chair up, you can join a ski club in North Conway, NH, and ski at any of the ski areas nearby (Attitash, Wildcat, Black, Cranmore, Bretton Woods, Cannon, Sunday River, Shawnee Peak, and more all within 1 hour of the town, some much closer).
As a ski club member you'll have a bunk bed in a club lodge, a group of skiers to have dinner with Friday night and Saturday night, a breakfast provided on Saturday and Sunday morning, and people to ski with if you like. People go up on weekends to stay in the club. It's a social scene as well as a group of committed skiers, so you can make friends. You can race with your club team if you like. With club membership comes lift ticket discounts. You will need a car to get to club and the skiing areas. It's the cheap way to ski.
