When I took a hike up to Glen Boulder this past Sunday it was 70 degrees and I was wearing a t-shirt and shorts. I never would have guessed that Pinkham Notch was going to get hit with over a foot of snow three days later but I was quickly reminded it's April in the Whites, and anything can happen. Myself and a few others will be heading out to open Mizpah, Greenleaf and Galehead starting this Saturday. It's hard to think the summer season is only a month away when I look out the window and see snow plows and fresh ski tracks but, with the forecasted 70 degree weather and some sunny skies this weekend, summer should hopefully be just around the corner.
