Anyone know of a Website for South Western New Hampshire trail reports? My father just bought a place in Walpole (bout 30 mins north of Keene). Need to check in and see trail conditions before I make the 3 1/2 hr drive. Thanks for the help.

Happy, healthy and much faster (MPH) year to everyone.

I have one link on my computer that is a great source for all of New England.

www.snowmobilenewengland.com

You can find a lot of New Hampshire links from there.

I live 25 minutes south of Keene on the Mass Boarder. We got 6 inches of snow Sunday - Monday. The ponds are fun to ride on, but there just isn't enough snow to ride the trails yet. Keeps your eyes on the weather though. Some weather sites are calling for snow Wed, Sat, and Mon.

The ponds out here in Chesire county area are great. We have been dragg racing on them for two and a half weeks now. All the ponds in Rindge and Jaffrey are ridable. I have heard that Dublin pond is not good yet, still open in fact. I have not sceen it with my eyes though. It just doesn't make sense to me that it wouldn't be covered over yet, unless it has quick moving currents and or warm springs.

Just curious - not giving you crap. You guys refer to riding on "ponds." Do you refer to any bodies of water as "lakes" or is a pond something too small to be considered a lake? I think of a pond as an area where you couldn't even get your sled up to speed. Just wondering.

Hey Tantrum, Not a lot of snow over Walpole way. Maybe 6-8 inches. If you come up you'll probably be disappointed. I imagine it's pretty chewed up.Maybe small storm Sat.night.Woodford State Park (southern Vt.) got 18" the other day.

Ponds are less than 75 acres in size. Yea, they are quite small, and once you do get going fast you are quickly at hte other end of the lake. But it's better than nothing. All we need is one big storm and the cold temps will keep it for most of what is left of the season. This winter has sucked do far. PRAY FOR SNOW IN NEW ENGLAND!
