New Years snowshoeing, skiing, ice climbing in the White Mountains

We will go up to the White on Friday December 27th for a long weekend which will conclude with our annual New Years which takes place this year at Carter Notch.

We will stay at the White Mountains Hostel in New Hampshire. I will not make the reservations so please make your own on their website. Remember that on the 31st we will spend the night at Carter Notch so you only need a place until then.

The Carter Notch event is here:

Here is the link to the White Mountains Hostel:

http://www.whitemountainshostel.com/index.html

Some of us are staying also at the Scenic Inn. They have a few rooms left so call them if you want to stay there:

http://www.scenicinn.com/

There are multiple activities to do in New Hampshire during the winter. Hiking with snowshoes, XC skiing, alpine skiing, ice climbing, or whichever other winter sports you're into. Since we are going to be a large group we will have a large choice of things to do every day. Post on the board what you're interested in doing. The hikes and activities are self-organized.

We will carpool up there. Please post if you need a ride or if you can offer a ride. Let people know from where and when you're leaving. Given that it's a long weekend. Some people might leave Friday and some people Saturday so make sure you specify the day you're leaving.

If you have any questions please email me, Francisco, at [masked].

    Just signed up for the International Mountain Climbing School avalanche class for a whopping $350: http://www.ime-usa.com/imcs/programs/aiare-avalanche-courses/ Didn't know whether IMCS or EMS was better since the price was the same.
