Snow! Snow! We want snow!

Monday, November 20th, 2006


Still no snow (winter of 05 in the picture), but I want to hear all you fans of the fluffy stuff chanting, “Snow! Snow! Snow!” We got teased today with a few scattered flurries! Not fair! We want more!

Wow! We just got the calendar of local events for our area for the winter and I can’t even begin to type everything that’s going on. Since all you skiers and boarders most likely know the incredible abundance of events for you here in the Whites, I’ll move on to activities other than the two biggies.

Close your eyes for a moment. Picture a field covered in pure, undisturbed white snow. In the middle is a lake of ice ready and waiting for you. You lace up the skates and go gliding along hand in hand with your honey. Under the winter sun, with a nip in the air you find yourself feeling alive. Winter’s blahs are gone and replaced with a renewed spirit of romance as you find yourself becoming part of the wonder of Winter.

Maybe skating isn’t your thing. Betcha haven’t built a snowman in a while have ya? Give it a shot yourself here on our wide open fields or come on up January 26th through the 28th to and see how the masters do it! Our neighboring community of Jackson holds its annual N.H. Snow Sculpting Competition the end of January and you won’t believe what they can do with snow! Puts a whole new perspective on “Frosty”!

How about casting away those winter traffic jam blues with a snowmobile tour through the amazing trails all throughout the mountains! Check out LilMan Snowmobile Rentals to do some real “dashing through the snow”!

When you’re done with all that winter fun in the valley lean back on our comfy sofa in front of a roaring fire. Put your feet up. Relax. How about a nice glass of wine or maybe some hot cocoa to warm those bones? We’ll take care of you. We’ve got just what you need. Peace and quiet in here and all the joys of winter waiting for you out there. Come on up for a visit. We’d love to have you as our guest

Chill in The Air!

Monday, November 6th, 2006


Winter’s chill is in the air (Winter 2005 to the left!). A quick glance at Mount Washington’s snow-covered peaks will let you know that snow is on it’s way to the valley. So far there have only been a few squalls here and there in the valley region, but it’s enough to stir the blood for those of us chomping at the bit for a sleigh ride!

Taking a look around the valley there is plenty to do in the winter. Of course everyone knows that skiing and snowboarding are always popular winter pursuits here in the mountains, but not all of us have the skill required to survive a zesty downhill run. Yours truly could only hope that whoever is behind me on the slopes is a medic! For those of us who don’t ski or board there are plenty of other opportunities for winter fun.

Snowmobiling is an exciting way to enjoy winter. Locally there are many places with clearly marked trails and beginner instruction. Some places offer self-guided trails and others with more complicated trails offer guided excursions. It’s a great way to see the wonders of winter.

Another wildly fun and low to no expertise way to get a winter rush is Tubing. Picture yourself flying down a groomed hill in a big rubber tube with the cold air rushing your cheeks! It’s like being a kid all over again!

If the stillness of the winter woods draws you in then snowshoeing and cross country skiing might just be for you. The hush of snow laden fields surrounds you and above you is that very special crystal blue sky that comes with winter in New England.

Of course there is one pastime that has and will continue to amuse snow bunnies of every era or skill level…snowman building. There is just something about rolling a huge snowball and then another one and then another one and putting it all together with a corn cob pipe and button nose that brings out the kid in all of us. Here at the Darby Field we have plenty of open spaces for you to bring your snowman to life!

Don’t forget to enjoy the sound of sleigh bells and cuddle up in a warm blanket on a sleigh ride while you’re staying with us!

Finish your snow fun off with a dinner in our spectacular dining room!

Hope to see you soon!
