Overview

This adventure is designed for women in search of a fun winter experience. Our trip begins with an orientation session and overnight at AMC's Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch before we strap on our snowshoes and trek to AMC's backcountry hut in Carter Notch. Exploring the forest, listening for wintertime birds and investigating animal tracks along the way give us ample opportunity to experience Carter Notch area in winter. One night is spent at the hut preparing a group dinner, checking out the winter sky at night and learning about winter ecology in the White Mountains. The terrain is moderate with some steep ups and downs, but the pace will be comfortable with plenty of time to explore and learn. Winter Lodge to Hut trips are designed for the experienced 3 season hiker looking to venture into world of winter. Participants must be comfortable carrying a pack over moderate terrain. Our planned mode of travel is on snowshoes (they can be borrowed from AMC if needed), but please keep in mind that conditions can be variable. Participants must be willing/able to carry their extra clothing, sleeping bag and some group food for 3.6 miles to Carter Notch Hut. Hut accommodations are rustic with wood stove heat for the common space and cooking facilities. Bunk rooms are not heated. Although we do our very best to adhere to the schedules listed above, these itineraries are subject to change for numerous reasons beyond our control including weather and terrain conditions. This can include changes in the huts to be used, trails to be hiked, and MW Auto Road closures etc. Program Highlights: •Spending the weekend with a group of active women •snowshoe to a unique backcountry hut •Focus on beginner winter skills •Backcountry Hut in winter •Night sky observations •Natural history explorations including animal tracks and snow
