Winter Waumbek Hike, overnight stay in Gorham and Hot tub

Trip dates: Saturday, February 3, 2018 8:00 AM to Sunday, February 4, 2018 12:00 AM

7.2 miles, 2917 feet elevation gain/loss B3B
Build or maintain winter hiking skills and experience (or work on your winter 48 summits or grid) with a moderately-paced winter hike to Mt. Waumbek. On the way, we will also tag Starr king (52 with a view). Aimed at previous or current Winter Hiking Program participants, this 7.2 miles, 2900-foot elevation gain hike will offer an opportunity to summit a 4,000 footer in winter with little above-treeline exposure. Previous winter hiking experience a plus, good fitness level, and full winter gear required.
Because it is the 2nd Northern-most 4,000 footer mountain in NH, , participants have an option to stay at a local hotel after the hike. The leaders have blocked a set of rooms at a local hotel (with hot tub!) which will be held until the end of December at a weekend rate of $130 per night per room. Tax included so you can split the room with friends 65.00 per person or cheaper with the more people per room
