Overview

Come ski or ride the backcountry of Mt. Washington! The Backcountry Ski and Ride Workshop offers a chance for backcountry skiers of all disciplines and levels to tour in the backcountry and learn new skills. Whether you are a novice who wants to learn the fundamentals, or an expert looking to refine your skills, this weekend will have something to offer you. There will be groups for Nordic backcountry and for general downhill-oriented snow sliders (splitboarders, telemark skiers and alpine touring skiers), offering basic instruction as well as more advanced groups focused on a full day of touring. The workshop will be based out of Pinkham Notch with tours and instruction happening on Mt. Washington and the surrounding area. Meals, lodging, and instruction is included in the workshop cost. Participants will need to provide their own equipment; we can help locate rental locations if needed. Cost for the workshop is $210 members / $260 non-members. Please contact registrar Cheryl Hacker for more information.
