Have you seen this?
Franconia Ski Club/Mittersill is expanding the racing dramatically with public/private financing.
They have cleared what is the widest trail in NH, some 300-400 ft wide and widened Baron's Run. There is a t-bar planned to service the new wide trail called the Taft Super Slope.
2010 saw the installation of a new double chair.
Baron's Run is FIS Super-G capable apparently.
4 inch pipe is being welded and dragged up Baron's Run for installation. A possible feed line is being welded at the nearby Echo Lake parking lot, in conjunction with the construction of a new dam on the lake for snowmaking purposes.
The half mile long Taft Superslope is a combination of two lower mountain slopes, a T-Bar lift line trail, and new upper elevation cutting. While the Mittersill backcountry area was originally bound to the footprint of the defunct Mittersill ski area to protect Bicknell's Thrush habitat, the state recently exempted itself from the restrictions by placing 65 to 80 acres of nearby land in preserved status. As a result, net new cutting was allowed to widen Baron's Run and widen and extend the Taft Superslope to above the previously protected 2,500 elevation line.
At roughly 300-400 feet wide, the Taft Superslope is now the widest ski trail in New Hampshire.
According to the agreement with the state, the Franconia Ski Club will have use of the superslope Friday-Sunday, while the Holderness School and Franconia Ski Club have use on Monday-Thursday.
