Comments CommentsFirst time skiing at King Pine today, leaving only 3 chairlift ski area in NH I have not visited, and I was pleasantly surprised. I got to say, when I first pulled up I was a little disappointed since it was smaller than I thought it would be BUT after skiing a few runs I found this ski area to be quite a fun little place, and I skied from 8:30 (opening) to 2:00 without getting too burned out.

First tracks were really great today at King Pine. The cord was nice and soft, and it was nice to speed down the empty mountain. The mountain was absolutely empty in the morning, besides the race team. As a result, there was still plenty of cord quite a few runs in! After a few hours, the snow did start to get skied off, it was a firm base, with some soft stuff to push around on top. The Polar Bear Triple had a steady stream of people in the morning, but there was never a real line. Meanwhile, Black Bear was absolutely deserted, even when traffic started to pick up at Polar Bear later in the day. When I left around 2, Polar Bear was starting to get maybe a 2-3 minute line, as it seems a lot of people took advantage of the half-day ticket that started at 1:30. Black Bear was still a ghost town when I left though.

After 49 runs at King Pine, I can easily say I enjoyed this ski area more than I thought I would! While I probably won't be returning in a while, I certainly wouldn't mind doing so! Now just got to get to Black, Dartmouth Skiway, and Campton Mountain!
