Spring Nordic BC Skiing in the Sandwich Range, NH

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through June 3.

Trip dates: Friday, March 22, 2019 12:00 AM to Sunday, March 24, 2019 12:00 AM

We will welcome spring with two full-day trips in the Sandwich Range Wilderness and the valley to the south. We will choose from a variety of tours using old roads, hiking trails, multi-use trails, and groomed ski trails. Expect moderate pace with several short snack/water stops -- sit-down lunch is unlikely unless temps are super balmy. Limited to six (6) experienced skiers -- comfortable skiing on ungroomed trails and dealing with obstacles like streams and fallen logs, undaunted by the occasional steep hill or possible bushwack, and in good shape. Difficulty will depend as much on snow conditions as terrain: Advanced Intermediate.
Our base will be the leader's house at the foot of Mount Whiteface, where everyone will help with meals.
We are using a Google form for registration and to screen for maximum enjoyment. We'll follow up by phone/email as needed.
