呵呵,LM代表我们党,可要照顾好这些丽人宝贝呀,特别是这个周末还下大雪的呢。

你们有没有考虑过到滑雪的地方登山?这样滑下来就是free的了啊。 happy

How about this?

POTASH MOUNTAIN The ledgy top of this little 2700-foot peak is one of the best viewpoints along the Kancamagus Highway. It's a moderate hike of 4.4 miles round trip with an ascent of 1400 feet. The trailhead is at a parking area on the south side of the highway across from the entrance to Passaconaway Campground. Follow the Downes Brook Trail for 0.3 mile, then turn right on the Mt. Potash Trail. You have to cross Downes Brook at 0.4 mile, which can be difficult after a heavy rain. The trail soon crosses a logging road (an alternate access to avoid the brook crossing), traverses through hardwoods, then zigzags up through hemlock and spruce forest to an outlook ledge at 1.6 miles. Here there's a southeast view to the Downes Brook valley and huge Mt. Passaconaway. After a short breather, the trail climbs again and swings around the steep south slope of Potash, coming out onto other view spots. A scramble up more ledges hoists you to the open summit.
Facing southwest you gaze into the heart of the Sandwich Range Wilderness: Mts. Passaconaway and Whiteface, Downes Brook valley, the Sleeper Ridge, Sabbaday Brook valley, and Mt. Tripyramid. North and northwest the view sweeps over the broad Swift River valley to an array of ridges beyond, including Mts. Hancock and Carrigain. By poking around you can get a look northeast to the distant Presidentials, perhaps cloaked white with an early snowfall.

Or this?

------------------------------------------------------

Mizpah Spring Hut
5.2 miles round trip, 1900-ft. elevation gain, intermediate

The moderately graded trek up the historic Crawford Path and the linking Mizpah Cutoff offers relatively easy access to ridgetop boreal forests and a sunny clearing with partial views at the AMC's Mizpah Spring Hut (closed in winter). It's a good choice for snowshoers not ready to tackle the more difficult and exposed trip up the Crawford Path to Mt. Pierce (see Chapter 11, "Mt. Pierce," in Snowshoe Hikes in the White Mountains), or for anyone if the weather is iffy above treeline.
The route to Mizpah starts at a spacious plowed parking area (with toilets) off the Mt. Clinton Road, 0.1 mile from its junction with US 302. This intersection is 0.2 mile north of the entrance to the AMC Crawford Notch Hostel. From the parking area there's a nice view of the Willey Range to the SW. Elevation here is 1920 ft.
To access the Crawford Path, follow the Crawford Connector into woods from the north end of the parking area. In a short distance the trail crosses the Mt. Clinton Road (plowed some winters but usually snow-covered), re-enters the woods, and climbs gradually SE through a fine spruce forest. After passing through a blowdown area, you cross Gibbs Brook on a wide footbridge (with handrails) and meet the Crawford Path at 0.4 mile. (The Crawford Path ascends 0.2 mile from Rt. 302 to this point, but there is no parking at the trailhead.)
Turn left on Crawford Path, known far and wide as "the oldest continuously used hiking trail in America." It was cut in 1819 by the famed innkeeper and mountain man, Ethan Allen Crawford, and his father, Abel, for the purpose of guiding tourists along the Southern Presidential ridge to Mt. Washington. In 1840 the Crawfords upgraded the trail so that horses could bear intrepid riders across the heights. Today the Crawford Path is immensely popular with hikers in all seasons; consequently there is usually a well-packed track through the winter, except after new snowfall.
The ancient trail immediately settles you into a steady, moderate climb - a little steeper here, a little easier there - but never difficult. At first you follow up alongside Gibbs Brook on your left, and at 0.6 mile a short side path leads to the edge of a high bank with a nice view of ice-encrusted Gibbs Falls set in a rocky glen. The main trail continues up along the scenic brook, coming close to the bank in a couple of spots. You're snowshoeing up through old growth woods dominated by red spruce and yellow birch. This watershed has been set aside by the U.S. Forest Service as the Gibbs Brook Scenic Area. The trees in this rugged ravine are part of a 1,650 acre tract on the slopes of Mts. Pierce, Jackson and Webster that has never been harvested - a rarity in the White Mountains. According to an article by researcher Jeffrey R. Foster in the December 1982 isse of the AMC's Appalachia journal, at that time the woods here included trees as old as 323 years for red spruce, 261 years for yellow birch, 187 years for paper birch, and 150 years for balsam fir.
Higher up the trail pulls away from the brook and climbs moderately through fine forest on the south side of the valley. After one short, steep pitch, the woods segue into an open boreal forest dominated by balsam fir. Some of the trees are festooned with the wispy, lime-green lichen known as old man's beard. The climbing is steady, with a few easier stretches, up to the junction with Mizpah Cutoff at 1.9 miles/3380 ft. The small clearing here is a natural break spot, a fact seemingly well-known to the local Canda jays. These interesting and remarkably tame birds of the boreal forest, in appearance somewhat like an overgrown chickadee, will happily take food from your hand if offered. After stashing it somewhere off in the woods, they'll come back looking for more.
At this junction the route to the hut bears right on the Mizpah Cutoff. This trail, sparsely blazed in blue, ascends steadily for about 0.2 mile, with one section through an area of dense growth that may be a bit hard to follow if untracked. As the trail levels off at the top of this climb, you'll see an opening off to the left where a windstorm has toppled the trees. If the snow is firm and deep, adventurous snowshoers can bushwhack about 200 feet through open woods to the trees at the top edge of this clearing, taking care to protect against an inadvertent poke in the eye from a branch. The reward is a nice view NW to Cherry Mtn. and more distant peaks. Down in the Bretton Woods valley snow-covered fairways surround the red-roofed Mount Washington Hotel. (Don't descend into the blowdown area, where tree trunks may be hidden under the snow.)
From here on the grade of Mizpah Cutoff is gentle, almost level in places - perfect for a leisurely ramble through the snow-cloaked boreal forest. You're traversing the broad wooded ridge at the base of Mt. Pierce's south summit. At 2.5 miles the trail makes a sharp right at a double blaze and runs over a low rise to meet the Webster Cliff Trail. (At this turn an obvious unofficial shortcut continues ahead and downhill, also leading to Webster Cliff Trail.)
Turn left on this white-blazed path for a short stint on the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail. There's an easy 100-yard descent, then the trail swings right into the clearing by the boarded-up Mizpah Spring Hut (elevation 3800 ft.). Opened in 1965, this is the newest of the AMC's high country hostels and, indeed, it has a contemporary look with its sharply slanted roof. The structure was designed to withstand winds of 200 mph. Hopefully the winds will be a litlle lighter than that, allowing you to enjoy your lunch at this sunny spot.
At the upper NW side of the opening, where the Webster Cliff Trail enters the woods for the steep climb up the south slope of Mt. Pierce, is a big, sloping snowdrift that provides a nice view back to the stark, snowy cone of Mt. Jackson, poking up from the ridge a mile and a half to the south. Mt. Tremont, Bear Mtn. and other ridges can be seen in the distance to the left of Jackson, and to its right is Mt. Carrigain with its white-streaked Signal Ridge. By poking around the smaller clearings behind the hut, you can catch a peek at the long ridge of Mt. Davis to the SE.
If you yearn for a wider view, a steep and fairly difficult climb of 0.2 mile north on the Webster Cliff Trail will lift you to an open ledge with an excellent view south and SW. (Snowshoers descending from Mt. Pierce on a loop hike often slide down parts of this section, creating a sort of hardpacked bobsled run.) The panorama takes in Mt. Willey, Mt. Jackson, Mt. Carrigian, the lower Dry River valley, the Saco River valley, the Sandwich Range and other distant peaks. The extra mileage for this side excursion is 0.4 mile round trip with a 250-ft. elevation gain.
The return trip to your car retraces your ascent route.
