This is the Link for Tenney Mountain's Tubing on Natural Snow: <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.tenneymtn.com/events/" TARGET="_top">http://www.tenneymtn.com/events/</A> <BR> <BR>Tenney Mountain will be open for Tubing on their "Sno Magic" snow 06-14-03. They will be open all summer long for Tubing Daily from 5-9 P.M. with an outdoor grille. I was told that they were planning a Ski Camp in July. If things go well with the new Snowmaking system then I could see them seeing who would show up to ski on their "Sno Magic Snow". <BR> <BR>As far as who could have the best snow conditions between Easter and Thanksgiving, it looks like nobody will be able to touch what Tenney will be able to do, barring the snow making plant does NOT break down. Every other ski area needs to depend on the weather (Temperatures below 30 Degrees in the Fall Only). Tenney will NOT be Dependant on the weather since they will actually manufacture their snow indoors. Then blow the alreay made snow out onto the mountain when needed. I already have my Season Pass which was $255, which is supposed to be good from 10-01-03 through Closing Day. <BR> <BR>This past season was the first year that I skied Tenney, and surprisingly liked it very much. I was in the middle of building a house, so there was basically no money to spend on skiing this season. I usually ski at least a dozen different areas in NH, VT, MA, ME, and Tuck's. I bought a season Pass at Tenney for $199, and a Threedom Pass for $226 which is good for Loon, Waterville, and Cranmore in NH. I had Two Free Tickets at Bretton Woods in NH, and Two $29 Vouchers for the Big K in VT. Then I would make a few trips to Tuck's in the Spring. All of these passes gave me some nice variety, even though they were NOT Jay Peak, Widcat, or Sugarloaf. Tenney has about the same Vertical as Bretton Woods which is 1400 Feet I beleive. I skied there quite a bit this year except for the 25 below days in late January and early February. Whenever I was at another ski area I found myself always saying that I should have went to tenney because the conditions were always much better there. They seem to groom only when and where it is needed, so there was always lots of natural, ungrromed snow to be found days after the last storm had come through. There are spots that catch snow and the powder builds up quickly in these spots. I spoke to a friend that skied Wildcat in a Sunday storm. He had boot high powder which he thought was great. I told him I skied knee deep powder at Tenney. They have 5 or 6 nice glades, although some of them are very short. One Glade Trail that I beleive is called Englewood Glade is a long Glade with Tight Maples and nice boot high snow. You might see one or two other skiers but usually you are by yourself. They have one steep trail which is a nice steep drop off with bumps that you need to ski over a ridge to get to. The actual steep part is the real thing although it is not too long; probably 300 Feet. Sweet William has nice pitch and is where the snow builds up, and you can get about ten turns in Knee Deep Powder in a nice drop off on the left side. My favorite trail is Hornet which is a narrow, old fashioned New England trail that runs under the Hornet Chair rom top to bottom, usually with ungroomed snow, bumps, a legde or boulder to fly off, then a drop off with good sized bumps near the bottom. Instead of going on and rating each trail, Tenney is a nice place to get many runs in a day, good conditions, fair prices, friendly people, convenient (Only 50 Minutes from Manchester) 10 minutes from Exit 26 on 93 in Plymouth, NH. Even though the parking lot is full, I have never waited more than five minutes in line, and when on the mountain you may see 5 or 6 people, you might see 1 or 2 people, other times you might NOT see anyone else most of the way down depending on what Trail you are on. I never was bored at Tenney, which is surprising, since I like a lot of variety. You ski the same trails when you go there, but between the Glades, Hornet, the steep Snap Dragon or Forget Me Not, the snow conditions, and the feeling of this is your mountain (No Crowds, or people skiing into your family), it all makes for a nice day. I found that it has a country club kind of a feel. Just go ther, ski as fast as you like, you can fly off of rocks and ledges without anyone complaining. The ski are is run by ski industry people who did a great job this year. If everything works out as it did this winter then it should be a very nice and interesting summer at Tenney, even if it is only for Tubing and Dinner. But come October 1, I do NOT think there will be anyone that will have better conditions than Tenney. They can't since Tenney can make their snow at 60 Degrees, and everyone else simply can NOT.
