New Hampshire, White Mountains,
Why settle for the old NYE routine in the city when you can do something spectacular that few people have done...Ring in the new year from one of NH's 48 4K's. Join us on this rare member only trip and celebrate the new year in true hiking style. The best part is that you don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn to hike. This is one occasion where you actually sleep in the day OF the hike. Although a fun hike and we will take our time hiking, this is a serious winter hike in winter conditions and at night. We'll be hiking ~12 miles with ~5000' of elevation gain. Proper preparation and winter experience is a must. You must be in good physical condition and have plenty of experience in winter hiking with all the appropriate gear (see gear list). While the common areas of the Hut are somewhat heated by a wood stove, it will be cold in the bunk rooms. Your sleeping bag should be rated to at least 0 degrees. Participants are responsible for their own food. Basic cooking supplies (including a stove, pans, and cooking utensils) are available at the hut. Bring your own mess kit for eating.
