Backcountry skiing at Mt. Cardigan

  • Feb 16, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

New Snow.... should still have some fresh stuff on Mt. Cardigan. I'll be driving up from Boston on Saturday morning to search for a few virgin turns. Anyone care to join? I'll be skinning up, but I'm sure snowshoes or another traction device should get you to the top. I have an extra pair of snowshoes if needed. I'd love to drive up with somebody from Boston, or meet on the way, or just meet at the lodge if that makes sense. The start time is a moving target, depending on where people are coming from.

      I think we will have to join you next year. The list is only open for Saturday Advance, and both intermediate and advanced are taken for Sunday. Its not worth the trip for just one day. Darn...

    Would love to do this on a day I'm not working. Curious, do you have a route on Cardigan or are you coming down the trails?
