AVALANCHE AWARENESS TALK

Thursday, January 16, 2020 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Being in the mountains in the winter can be a very fun and magical experience. But like all outdoors activities there are hazards that we need to be aware of. Avalanches are one of those winter specific hazards and they do happen in the Northeast. If you would like to learn more about avalanches and start learning about how to avoid this hazard, this talk is a great place to start. During this hour long presentation we will go over the basics of avalanches using some local examples and discuss steps you can take to be avalanche aware.

March Madness Skiing at Pinkham Notch

Saturday, March 23, 2019 9:00 AM to Sunday, March 24, 2019 3:30 PM

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.
