Outdoor News and Views

Outdoor news: Mount Sunapee Resort, the ski area that operates at Mount Sunapee State Park in Newbury (NH), will open for the season today, Tuesday, November 30th.  According to the resort’s website: there will be “6,000 feet of top-to-bottom skiing and riding on Upper and Lower Blast Off trails. Terrain will be available for advanced and intermediate skiers and riders only. The Sunapee Express quad will be operating.” On Friday, the ski area will open “a top-to-bottom run on South Peak for novice skiers and riders.”

On the quieter side: A thin skim of ice is just beginning to appear on the coves and the quiet waters around Lake Sunapee. Yet, despite the colder temperature yesterday, two kayaks could be seen venturing out of Job’s Creek.

Photographer and outdoorsman Jim Block recently posted Sunapee Reflections…a captivating slide show of images that mirror nature and buildings around Great Island. With kayak and camera, Jim was out on Lake Sunapee November 21st, and last week posted the photos to his blog.
