March 2, 2018,– March 5, 2018

DESCRIPTION:

In conjunction with CT-AMC, leader Barbara Beckerman is offering a multi-day, cross-country ski-ing adventure in New Hampshire’s beautiful and wild White Mountains. Each day, we’ll glide along miles of groomed backcountry trails at Jackson Ski Touring Foundation and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center.


You’ll be staying at Joe Dodge Lodge, gateway to the Presidential Range, located at the base of Mount Washington on the Appalachian Trail in the White Mountain National Forest, less than 15 minutes to Jackson, NH. Accommodations for this trip are four to a room with shared hallway bathroom. Private room double occupancy with one full size bed is limited and at additional cost.


Our plan is to ski two days at Jackson and one day at Great Glen but the leaders may adjust this plan based on snow conditions. Leaders will offer two levels of tours each day (approx.7-10 miles per day with somewhat difficult steep terrain, on groomed trails). There will be a faster, more advanced group and a slower paced advanced beginner to intermediate group. It is important that all skiers can snowplow on the downhill and herring bone or side-step uphill proficiently. We plan to screen the skiing ability of all trip participants to ensure as compatible a group as possible.


There are numerous other backcountry ski options in the area, which you may explore on your own. Many of the backcountry trails leave from the touring centers. There are rentals and lessons available at both touring centers. The lodge has a limited number of snowshoes and poles to borrow.


In the event of poor snow conditions we will hike and/or snowshoe in the area. Closer to the ski weekend a group email will go out to all trip participants with additional trip information.


Enjoy backcountry hospitality after each day spent in this exhilarating wilderness setting. This will be a great winter weekend!
