Do you love chocolate? do you love XC skiing? Yes! Then you should join us for this cross-country ski weekend which includes the Mt Washington Valley, 30th Annual Chocolate Festival - Sunday, February 24th. Known by many as the 'Sweetest Day on the Trails", this may be the only day of the year when chocolate indulgence is totally guilt-free! Chocoholics cross-country ski the trails to enjoy chocolate prepared every way imaginable. Participants have the chance to enjoy over 20 different chocolate treats prepared by 18 area businesses (we don't promise to make it to all 18 locations!)

Saturday will be more cross-country skiing at a New Hampshire ski area nearby. We will be skiing at an easy to moderate pace. We will be staying at a cozy ski cabin complete with gas fireplace, pool table/ping pong table and plenty of space to hang out, drink hot chocolate and enjoy a delicious dinner and breakfasts! No car? no worries - leaders will help organize carpools. You won't want to miss this chocolate extravaganza!

In the summer I enjoy hiking and in the winter I've become a big fan of xc skiing. This is the third time I'm leading this chocolate ski trip! I look forward to meeting you all on my trip.
