Spring Skiing on Mt Washington can vary from challenging to ecstatic. This will be two days of advanced backcountry skiing. We hope to ski in the bowl ( Tucks and/or GOS) at least one day, but conditions will dictate where we go. You need to be an advanced skier on groomed resort trails (black diamond). Backcountry snow may be powder, ice, or anything between, so you need to be capable of getting down without injury. Skins are required - beacons and shovel are required for those going into the bowl. Group size is limited and registration required.
Jeff has led AMC ski trips for over 15 years. He leads resort and backcountry trips including Mt Washington.
Come join our merry band of skiers and boarders as we tell tall tales of epic face plants, awesome views, and sweet powder from previous seasons and this one so far, and plan for more and better for the remainder of this season and seasons ahead. Some of our trip leaders will be there to tell you about their trips, and members of the Boston Chapter Ski Committee will be on hand to give you an idea about what we do and the great skiing to be had in New England. We will have some snacks, and you can buy beer and non-alcoholic beverages in the taproom.

The trip starts and ends in Greenville, Maine in the Moosehead Lake area. The x-c skiing is 6-8 miles each day, going between the four lodges/camps - Gorman Chairback Lodge, Little Lyford Lodge, West Branch Pond Camps, and Medawisla Lodge (2 nights here). Gear is transported for us between each lodge. The skiing is on groomed (but not tracked) trails. It is suitable for intermediate skiers who are in reasonably good shape - not suitable for beginners. Meals are included beginning with dinner on Feb 4 through breakfast on Feb 9.
After a social Friday evening at Harvard Cabin (https://www.outdoors.org/lodging-camping/camps-cabins/harvard), and a shared breakfast on Saturday, one group will set out to downhill ski at Wildcat, Attitash, or Cranmore, based on snow conditions and group preference. Another group will hit Jackson or Bear Notch or Great Glen for cross-country skiing.
Eliza has been leading/co-leading four-season hiking and backpacking trips with the AMC since 2006. She and her family (husband and 8 year old daughter) downhill ski several times each season. Eliza's family have extensive hiking and backpacking experience in the US national parks, but don't have any particular claim to fame when it comes to skiing. She is a good cook and trip planner, which is what counts on this adventure!

Cross country skiers will be going at an easy to moderate pace on Advanced Beginner to Difficult trails at Stowe and Von Trapp Lodge.
