New Hampshire, White Mountains,
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the link below. The objective of this hike will be to give WHP participants experience in hiking a White Mountain four thousand footer in winter conditions. Attention will focus on gear layering, appropriate food and fluid intake and, hopefully, the use of foot traction, including microspikes and snowshoes. It is an excellent opportunity to use new skills, test gear and physical ability while getting to know other hikers in a pleasant and educational setting. Experienced leaders will assist with winter techniques and questions about hiking, and the Appalachian Mountain Club itself. Round trip of approximately 5 miles at a moderate pace with an elevation gain of 2,300 ft. 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.
