Overview

Join us to explore the trails in western MA, southern VT, and eastern upstate NY on the three-day President's Day weekend. We will visit cross-country (XC) skiing areas and backcountry (BC) ski locations. Intermediate XC abilities needed (including downhill control on touring equipment). If sufficient snow is not available, we will hike various scenic trails in the area. Our lodging is at a relaxing country home with private and semi-private accommodations available. Enjoy beautiful scenery, the company of fellow skiers/hikers, and hearty meals fit for a foodie! Cost is $218-258/per person. Register with Aldo. (If conditions do not allow for XC or BC skiing, alternatives such as hiking, downhill resort skiing, etc. will be available.) (Google Map below shows general location of the town of Hancock, MA. Specific directions to the lodging will be given after registration is completed.)

I have skied since the late 1970s, and have led skiing, bicycling, and hiking trips for the AMC since 2008. I am the most recent past chair of the Ski Committee for the Boston Chapter. I enjoy all types of free-heel skiing -- cross-country/nordic, downhill/telemark, and backcountry. Got snow? Let's go!
