It happened one hour after I tried to land. I was communicating with a Bald Mountain Camp air boss on the same freq at the time of mishap. It happens there was a rough air over Alton Bay.

Default Alton Bay

Dave,
Keep posting the videos. It may be the closest I get to Alton Bay. My youngest son and I tried a few years ago. It is difficult to get winter weather good enough from Tennesse to Alton Bay and still have the runway frozen. I may need to try it by myself next winter. Just go as far as I can and wait for the weather to clear.

Marvin

Mt Washington yesterday was also nice. Tuckerman's Ravine Skiing should be excellent this spring.

2019 was one of the longest seasons. It had some fits and starts with storms but Paul and the crew did an amazing job as always!

Vlad,

Doesn't look like Alton Bay will be open this year, according to the airport manager's Facebook posts. Looks like you've found some other ice to land on!
