Heading up the Gibson ski trail
After finishing Kearsarge North faster than I had budgetted, I headed over to Cranmore for some additional exercise. Cranmore is one of the few alpine ski areas in the state I have yet to ski, so I decided to do the next best thing and hike it.
I took an easy route, following ski and then snowcat tracks, up Beginner's Luck to Gibson to Easy Street. After finishing off a bag of trail mix on the deck of the Meister Hut, I descended down Rattlesnake to Skimeister - stepping out of both Stablicers while downing jump kicks down a steep section (what a pain in the neck it was to go back up a few hundred feet once I noticed them missing from my feet).
