New Hampshire, White Mountains,
Registration is not required for this activity. However, you may wish to contact the leader(s) if you have any questions.
Want to transition from the groomed trails at XC facilities into the wilderness and get away from the crowds? Or to take your winter snowshoeing adventures onto skis? All you need is the right equipment - cross country skis with scales (or wax) and partial or full metal edges.
The intro to cross country touring series from the NH Chapter Ski Committee consists of multiple individual trips. Each trip is a self-contained one-day event, so no need to sign up for the entire series, just pick and choose the classes that you are interested in and that will benefit you the most. If you are interested in the entire series, kudos to you! You can also spread it over multiple ski seasons. The series is intended to gradually build your skiing skills from easy tours that will allow you test out your equipment, learn basic technique, and get used to being in the backcountry through to longer tours with steeper hills and more obstacles. Sign up for each trip individually through the trip leader.
