Very busy lake in the summer, fishing is bad and the beach is a mess. I wish the rec dept would take care of it more. Says Dave
At Crotched Mountain 22% of the ski slopes are red and black while 78% are intermediate or beginner; everybody likes Crotched Mountain with its 75 acres of skiable territory. The 875 feet of height difference at nearby Crotched Mountain is pure pleasure. Crotched Mountain obtains 9 feet of white snow per year on its 23 ski slopes
that are served by its 5 ski lifts. The Route 9 and 123 to Hillsboro Fire Station section has a distance of 6 miles; you encounter this bit of whitewater on Contoocook River - North Branch.
