WHP Participants ONLY: Beginner Winter Backpack (Level 2/3)

Trip dates: Saturday, February 8, 2020 12:00 AM to Sunday, February 9, 2020 12:00 AM

This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Winter Hiking Program (WHP) and is only open to registered participants of that program. If you would like more information about the WHP, please email us at whp19@hb.amcboston.org or follow the link below.
The purpose of this trip is to gain experience and learn techniques for backpacking comfortably and safely in the backcountry in Winter. You'll experience the magic of camping in the snow at elevation. We will hike to Kinsman pond campsite where we will camp for the night. Weather and time permitting we will summit North and possibly South Kinsman mountains. We will practice winter navigation skills and learn strategies for body heat management. On Sunday, we will either hike down, or if conditions permit and the group is interested, we may loop to the summit of Cannon mountain before returning to the trail head
