For our first outing of the year to Mt. Washington, we had two for x-country skiing and nine for snowshoeing. The snowshoers did a loop in the morning of Old Cabin, Tree Beard and Rossiter’s Rise, then returned to Raven Lodge for lunch. In the afternoon, we made a loop of Old Cabin and Crooked Creek. The skies were a bit overcast, the snow somewhat crunchy and the breeze was fairly bracing. Two of us had binding issues and found it easier to walk; the trail was completely firm so no problem. Everyone got enough exercise and we finished up around 2:30. 7.7 km; 3¾ hours.
