BRETTON WOODS, New Hampshire ??вЂќ Bretton Woods Mountain Resort has given skiers and riders much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend. A foot and a half of new snow fell on a record 5400 skiers over the four-day holiday, a 19% increase over the past record set in 2002.
In addition to the welcome snowfall that enabled the Resort to open more terrain than any other in New Hampshire, many new Bode ONE season pass holders came to enjoy the uncrowded slopes. Powder hounds discovered trails opened on entirely natural snow, while the fans of Bretton Woods??в„ў renowned grooming found a solid base of manmade snow on their favorite trails. The Bode ONE pass, named after the Resort??в„ўs director of skiing and World Cup Champion Bode Miller, offers unrestricted skiing and riding starting at $399.
Nordic skiers also had plenty to be thankful for as the cross country trails opened with 30 kilometers by the weekend.
Snowfall began on Tuesday afternoon and continued through Thursday. Many skiers and riders arrived at the Mountain early Thursday morning to enjoy the fresh powder before traveling over the river and through the woods to The Mount Washington Hotel for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner celebration.
