May 17 to 19, 2013

The Mount Washington Valley is fast becoming the Kindness Capital of New England!  That’s great news, because according to The Kindness Center, kindness is the secret to happiness. This year, the weekend BEFORE Memorial Day weekend, (Victoria Day Weekend or Patriot’s Day in Canada), locals and visitors alike will be soaking up the kindness message as well as inflicting random acts of kindness on our community.

Friday evening May 17, 2013:  free keynote lecture by returning best selling author and speaker Michael J. Chase, founder of The Kindness Center. Michael has a brand new book out this year to share as well! After the lecture at Kennett’s Loynd Auditorium, we’ll gather under The Kindness Tent in Schouler Park for Good Vibes Coffee and Dessert and enjoy the Candlelit Labyrinth sponsored by I am Grateful to You.

Saturday morning, May 18, 2013 : gather in N. Conway Village for inspiration and collect the tools of the kindness trade before fanning out to the community to commit all sorts of kindness on unsuspecting strangers. So don’t be surprised if a stranger hands you a smiley face balloon, pumps your gas or pays for your coffee while you’re standing in line.
Throughout the day, the labyrinth will be open, and we’ll enjoy free massages, free blood pressure screenings by the visiting nurses, a 150 foot canvas of kind art, free crafts for the kids with The Artery, hugs from the White Mountain Community Health Center Teen Clinic, and more kind fun in the park. At 11am Saturday, join a free, special presentation about life in the alpine zone - created just for this festival, at MW Observatory Weather Discovery Center. From 10am – 2pm Saturday, the White Mountain Waldorf School is running their amazing annual May Faire event next door at the N. Conway Community Center!

Saturday afternoon, May 18, 2013, enjoy a very fun and motivational presentation by Nancy Sporborg & Pat Piper, authors of “It’s Not About the Hike”. Saturday evening will begin with an inter-faith service and a Butterfly Release as a service of our local hospice nurses. Saturday evening will close with a live concert in the park featuring Motor Booty Affair sponsored by Mount Washington Radio Group.

Sunday Morning, May 19, 2013, join Herbalist Heather Chase on an educational and really interesting walk from The Local Grocer, into the woods and fields to identiy edible and healing plants we can find everyday.

Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures

30 03 2013

 “Seek your Own Vision, and Create Great Photos”

New England Fall Foliage Photo Workshop
October 6 to 10, 2013
 
Fall Winding Road - Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures
Join Margo Taussig Pinkerton and Arnold Zann, both award-winning photographers who spent their careers as successful working pros, for their photography workshop  in the stunning, White Mountains area of northern New Hampshire very near to the  Maine border. People come from all over the world to see the incomparable foliage of northern New England. The riot of colors against the deep green  conifers, along with quaint New England villages, farms, and covered bridges,  make great subject matter. We’ll take in little-known locations that are  favorites of The Barefoot Contessa, a native of this state.
Because  of Margo’s long-time, intimate knowledge of northern New England, we’ll have some great locations all to ourselves, and you’ll be able to celebrate your passion for photography, hone your seeing and imaging skills, and learn about  the magic of light to make wonderful photographs.
We’ll be based near Conway close to the scenic Kancamagus (KAN-kah-MAY-gus — many people mispronounce it and add a “g”) Highway.

You’ll discover covered bridges, a staple of this part of the country. Some are red,  some weathered barn board, and all carry their own characteristics.

North Conway Named Most Affordable Ski Destination in the NorthEast

20 11 2012

Article copied from the 2012-2013 Season New Hampshire Winter Guide, published by Salmon Press Newspapers :

“TripAdvisor’s Inaugural Ski Destination Cost Comparison Intex Reveals Top Resorts in U.S. and Canada Where Travelers Can Hit the Slopes and Save. North Conway comes in most affordable in Northeast and #2 in the U.S.

 

TripAdvisor, the world’s lagest travel review site launched its inaugural TripIndex Ski - a cost comparison of 20 popular ski destinations across the United States and Canada. North Conway, NH was deemed the least expensive ski destination in the Northeast and the second least expensive destination for skiing in the U.S.

TripAdvisor’s TripIndex Ski presents the combined cost of one night’s hotel accommodation, a basic ski rental package, a one-day lift tickets, a local meal and a bottle/glass of beer at top ski destinations. Salt Lake City, Utah came in as the most affordable ski destination, with a total TripIndex Ski cost of $238.58. Yet North Conway scored just over a dollar higher on TripAdvisor’s TripIndex Ski at $239.88, making the price between two top contenders negligible. With a price tag of $746, Vail, Colorado emerged as the priciest ski spot in the country.

“For travelers who are looking for a snowy escape, TripIndex Ski provides an easy way to compare the most popular ski destinations across North America,” said Karen Drake, senior direction of communications at TripAdvisor. “TripIndex Ski is a useful tool for travelers who are looking to get the best bang for their buck this winter season”.

According to TripAdvisor, the TripIndex Ski prices out the following items in each destination : Per night cost of a hotel (between December 2011 and March 2012 within 5 miles of the destination), cost of a lift ticket, cost of a meal (burger and fries from 3 local restaurants on or near the mountain) and cost of an alcoholic drink (domestic beer at 3 local pubs on or near the mountain).

Prices were collected through a variety of research methods, and apply to travel between December 2011 and March 2012. The “basket” of items is representative of the common items many travelers will purchase while on a ski vacation says TripAdvisor.

“It means a lot to us to learn that TripAdvisor, a trusted trip planning resource for travelers, has recognized that North Conway and the surrounding region offers and affordable ski destination,” said Janice Crawford, Executive Direction of the Mt Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. “With 13 ski resorts and XC centers all offering great skiing and value, skiers need look no further than the Northeast’s most affordable ski destination this winter,” finished Crawford. All of Mt Washington VAlley’s ski resorts are making snow around the clock as temperatures allow and plan to be open for Christmas week (the week between Christmas and New Year). Six out of seven are presently open.”

At Cranmore Mountain Lodge, room rates start from $89 per night for the whole winter season, and we offer many different ski & stay packages options with different ski resorts. You can find all these packages by clicking here.
