Overview

Think Winter Hiking is not for you? Let us convince you otherwise on this relaxed weekend of hiking near Crawford Notch, NH. This two night trip will include some instruction before trying out a moderate hike on Saturday. We'll cover how to stay warm and comfortable using layers. We'll also go over proper fit and use of snowshoes, traction, and poles. The hike will be followed by a hearty meal at a cozy motel shared with old and new friends. Sunday's hike will be leaders' choice. This trip is suitable for fit, three season hikers who want to learn how to hike in the best season of all, winter. It is also opened to more experienced winter hikers who are looking for a moderate hike at a moderate pace. The fee of $115 includes two nights lodging, two breakfasts, and one dinner. You provide your own lunch and snacks. Required equipment includes waterproof, insulated winter boots. Snowshoes, crampons, light traction and poles available for rent if you don't already have them. A complete list of suggested winter clothing and gear will be supplied upon request. Feel free to discuss your gear and concerns with the leader. You will not be registered until the leader receives your check.
