Early Snowbird Hiking and Skiing

Saturday, December 15, 2018 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Call me crazy, but I like to hike uphill and ski down. I prefer skins, but one needs snow for that. Current conditions suggest we hike up Pat's Peak and ski down. There might be snow for skinning, but likely will bootpack up and ski down (traction needed). This could change if we get snow, hence Registration required ( https://goo.gl/forms/rB2hMI9q4xC7GVT93 ).
It's a great workout and should be part of your training regiment as you prepare for winter. Exercise, outdoors, skiing. Nothing crazy about that.

Avalanche Awareness Talk

Tuesday, December 18, 2018 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.
