Re 273. It is kept open for quite some distance PAST where you turn off to go to the ski area, I think maybe it's 3 or 4 more miles to the gate. The road is kept plowed to that gate, a turnaround is plowed, and restrooms there kept open. That is the premier cross country ski and snowmobile area for the White Mountains. Even when most other places no longer are holding snow, that area does hold snow. It is much better than Pole Knoll when snow starts melting off.
