Did you get a new AT setup over the holidays? Are you eager to get outside for exercise? Are you interested in trying uphill travel on rental gear?
Join us for a Skin & Ski at Tenny mtn near Plymouth, NH. Tenny offers classic New England trails, 1,200 ft vertical, and a reliable snow base. For those new to uphill travel, there will be AT and telemark volunteers available to teach basics on attaching skins, climbing techniques, and heat management. We will make multiple trips up and down the mountain, practicing transitions and getting a great workout. Rentals are available in Lincoln, 30 min away.

Participants need to be capable of hiking at least 2,400 vertical feet (at moderate grade) and spending the day outside in winter. Rentals are available in Lincoln, 30 min away. We will follow Covid19 travel restrictions to the State of New Hampshire and AMC protocols. We will maintain distance and wear masks in the parking lot and base
near the lodge and when helping people with their gear. The cost for this event will be $15 for an uphill pass.
