    Also, 3 hours from Boston? You must live in a neighborhood that's difficult to get to the highway. On a weekend with no commuter traffic, Cannon is 2 hours tops from Boston. Google maps lists 2 hours and 7 minutes and their estimates are always conservative.

    Thanks for the report on conditions and the non-crowds. I did not go. Well, too bad, it would have been nice to burn up my quads. Whatever I try in terms of conditioning, nothing comes even close to actually skiing.

    As to the distance to my favorite NH ski mountain, it's 152 miles for me. I live in Hyde Park/Milton border. Google Maps puts it at 2h 29 minutes but since there is always traffic on South East Expressway, the actual trip time is closer to 3 hours or me. So 6 hours of driving per day trip - it's a factor.
    Live for today
