 10-28-06 Whiteface & Passaconaway NH
Date(s) Hiked: 10/28/06

Trails(s) Hiked: Blue Berry Ledge, Rollins, Dicey Mill.

Total Distance: 11.9 miles

Difficulty: Very Hard

Conditions: Winter wonderland until 9 am when it started to rain then it was a SLUSHY NIGHTMARE

Special Required Equipment: Stabicers are vital for climbing the rocks before Whiteface Summit.

Trip Report:

What a wild hike. So many different forms of precipitation! Rain, Ice, Mixed rain/Snow, Mixed Ice/Snow, Heavy Snow, Powder Snow. It precipitated the entire time too. It was beautiful on Whiteface with all the powdery snow. By the time I got to Passaconaway the snow got wetter and heavier. I made a snowman at the summit! Between 3000 and 2000 on Dicey Mill on the trip back to my car it was 100% Slush which ABSOLUTELY SUCKED. For the full report as well as pictures go here

Enjoy! Glad I had a poncho!

It's really just glorified walking in the woods.

Geesh, what conditions! Glad you went on this hike and wrote this trip report, so our group gets an idea of what to expect tomorrow. I'd rather hike in the snow.

Happy trails and keep truckin'!
