If you are anywhere in the Boston area and want to go skiing in New Hampshire, there is nothing more frustrating than not knowing how to get there! I have just finished planning out a Boston to Loon Mountain bus trip and am about to share with you exactly how it’s done.

Eat at the food tents (they give plenty of samples!) and shop at the designer and artisan vendors.

(I recommend the thickest most chocolatey hot chocolate ever from the vendor “No Chewing Allowed” — as seen on right.)
