Trip dates: Saturday, February 22, 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. This intermediate-level day hike offers the opportunity to practice your newly minted winter hiking skills, practice heat and energy management techniques, gain familiarity with carrying a heavier winter daypack on uphill and downhill terrain, the use of snowshoes/crampons, and possibly take in some great views and make new friends. This day trip is ideal for folks who have been on a hike of at least 7 miles at a moderate pace and are ready for the next step. This hike will be approximately 10.5 miles in length with 3500' of elevation gain and will (hopefully) reach the summits of Middle and South Carter...This is a rain or shine hike, though conditions will be considered for safety.
