We are the New Hampshire Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club. We have many activities going on each month. Our volunteer Trip Leaders lead trips to many places in northern New England, some that may be familiar and many that will be completely new to you. We'll take you to the tallest peaks of the Presidential Range and to the smaller ones, like Willard and Major. On our trips, the safety of the group is always paramount. All of our activities are led by trained volunteer Trip Leaders and may vary from single day to multi-day events. Learn more about us at: https://amcnh.org/committees/excursions-hiking/
This trip requires registration as described below in order to particpate.
OVERVIEW: What does it take to maintain some of the best backcountry skiing in New England? Not much if there are lots of people to help! Come along with the AMC Boston and New Hampshire chapters as their ski and trails committees clear blowdowns and cut back brush to keep Mt. Cardigan’s ski trails in tip-top shape. We’ll provide all tools (unless you have favorite loppers or a hand saw). Work is divided into several squads, each covering a set of related trails. Because of pandemic restrictions, there will be no dinner provided this year.
This is a great way to kick off the ski season, socialy-distant mingle with old ski friends, and make new ones. Fans of alpine, telemark, snowboarding, back country, all terrain, and cross-country skiing are all welcome! Come prepared for the weather, as we will work in anything short of a blizzard.
Trip leaders will send an e-mail the week before the event with additional details including meeting times(!) and place. If you for some reason you don't receive it please contact the trip leaders.
ROUTE: We'll be split into small squads to each have individual routes. All ski trails will be covered.
DIFFICULTY: Moderate to strenuous. Expect wet and muddy conditions along some trails.
PACE: Pace depends on the work we find along the way and what tools we carry.
REGISTRATION: Registration and participation is ONLY by way of the AMC Activities listings; this Meetup notice is just for publicity. You will fill out a special COVID-19 release form as part of the process; you cannot participate in the trip without this form.
