Overview

Join other outdoor women for a fun and exciting winter adventure. On Friday night, participants will meet and greet the AMC guides and remainder of the group, and get an orientation to AMC and to the weekend's activities. On Saturday we will ride on the Mount Washington Auto Road SnowCoach to treeline. The SnowCoach is a specially constructed all-wheel drive van. The unique 4-track system allows the SnowCoach to deliver you to the world above tree line for a truly unforgettable experience. On the way back down the Auto Road we will get dropped off at a lower elevation and snowshoe back to the AMC Joe Dodge Lodge. On Saturday we have post-activity social hour with appetizers and a featured evening program. On Sunday we will have the option of skiing the beautiful, perfectly groomed Nordic system or exploring the ungroomed trails by snowshoe at Great Glen Outdoor Center. We will finish with a sit down lunch.
