Outdoor Skills: Winter 4,000-Footer Weekend
Friday, March 22 @ 12:00 am
This weekend is designed for active, fit participants interested in summiting some 4000+ foot peaks in Crawford Notch during the winter. Participants may be after the 48 peaks or just interested in some moderately challenging winter hiking in the White Mountains with a group. The program will commence Friday evening with dinner, followed by a welcome session where you will meet and greet other group members and guides, and learn about the hikes being offered that weekend. Our professional guides will cover what to expect during the hike including terrain, trail conditions and weather, hiking safety, a recommended gear list, leave no trace, and more. Additionally, during the hike, guides will point out interesting flora/fauna along the way. The group will attempt to hike at least one 4000 footer on Saturday and one on Sunday, with the possibility to do several. Actual hiking destinations may vary based on weather and trail conditions, but options include: Mt. Tom, Mt. Field, Mt. Willey, Mt. Pierce, Mt. Webster, and Mt. Jackson.
Also offered on Saturday will be a pre-hike stretching session, a post hike social hour including complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar, and a evening program featuring local hikers who have completed the 48 4000 footers.
