The calendar may say spring, but there's still some winter experience to be had in the mountains! Join us for a mellow trip up Potash Mountain, a peak on the 52 With a View List that lives up to that status. Weather permitting we'll have lovely views across the Sandwich Range Wilderness, including the best views to be had of Mount Tripyramid.

This trip will cover 4.5mi and climb 1500ft at a very steady but moderate pace (approx. 1.5mi/hr). Participants are expected to have similar winter hiking experience and to have maintained regular activity this winter. Snowshoes and microspikes are required, Plan on wearing a face covering with at least two layers all day (except for eating/drinking stops.) Full gear list in "Related links". Space is limited so be sure to keep up-to-date on registration emails; note the number of spots taken does not include those who have submitted this form but not completed registration.

To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun
