MT. WASHINGTON VALLEY WEEKEND EVENTS AND HIGHLIGHTS
Don’t miss Black Mountain’s Annual Snow Dance: November 22 marks a ritual Black Mountain established a few years ago. Ever since the Show Dance tradition was started, we’ve had good snow years, so we’re not going to stop now. Start gathering around the bonfire outside the Black Mountain base lodge on November 22nd at 4:30pm. Carlene, a talented snow dancer and yoga instructor, will pray to the snow Gods and we’ll all cheer them encouraging a great snow year. Afterward, there’s entertainment, dancing and plenty of spirits for all. All ages are welcomed. Info: 603-383-4490, www.blackmt.com .
