Overview

Come celebrate the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 on a journey through the 100 Mile Wilderness to stay and explore all three of AMC's beautiful remote Maine Lodges. On this three night excursion participants will enjoy winter at its best, skiing, snowshoeing, and enjoying winter in the comfort of our Lodges. We will start our Program meeting at the Winter Parking lot and the guides will then shuttle participants up to the start of the ski tour at Medawisla Lodge and Cabins where participants can explore the new facility, have a delicious meal and that evening to go over the schedule. From Medawisla the group will be shuttled by staff with Registered Maine Guides to West Branch Camps and then ski from there eight miles to Little Lyford Pond Camp. There will be time to explore around Little Lyford before dinner which will be served at 6pm. At 9:30am the next morning the group will follow their guides on the Lodge to Lodge Trail seven miles to Gorman Chairback. Upon arrival at Gorman Chairback, guests will be showed to their cabins and then have the opportunity to explore the local trails around camp before sitting down to a delicious and delightful dinner in the Lodge. This evening we will celebrate the New Year with new friends, and good cheer! The next morning after breakfast the group will ski the seven miles back to the winter parking lot. We should arrive at our cars by 3pm.
