WHP: Blue Hills 1 (Instr)

Date and Time

Saturday, December 11, 2021


Massachusetts, Boston Area,


Registration is required for this activity.


This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Winter Hiking Program (WHP) and is only open to enrolled participants of that program. If you would like more information about the WHP, please email us at Online break-out sessions are great but they are limited and lack the hands-on experience that we have historically provided program participants. But we don't want anyone to arrive at a trailhead for a real winter hike and find out they aren't actually prepared. So pack your gear, grab your boots and mask, and ... Meet us at the Blue Hills in Milton MA for a hands-on gear review and Q&A session followed by a 4-6 mile hike. Experienced four-season leaders will have their gear, boots, and clothing on display and will review some of the skills discussed during the WHP online sessions. Please bring your own gear for review and practice, and get practical help with things like attaching snowshoes to your pack, or boots! If you have yet to get your gear, come anyway to see examples and ask questions. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.
