BEONLINEWITHAMC: Beyond the 48 - the winter edition

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Wed October 14, 2020

Contrary to what some people think, the hiking season doesn't end when there's snow on the ground. In fact, many people think it's actually just beginning. While climbing the 48 peaks in New Hampshire above 4,000 feet has become a popular winter pursuit, there are other high peak challenges both in New Hampshire and throughout the Northeast that someone can use for motivation. These include the Adirondack 46, the New England 67, the Northeast 115, and even the Trailwrights 72. While the number of people who have completed most of these lists in non-winter are in the thousands, the numbers drop to the hundreds for those who have completed them in winter. Reaching some of the summits was relatively straightforward and easy while others required detailed planning, mental endurance, and physical strength. Join Michael Blair as he shares stories, pictures, and tips of his journey to explore these other peaks.

You must register for this event. We will e-mail you the Zoom meeting details on the day of the event around noon. The presentation will start at 7:00 pm.

Michael first became involved with the Appalachian Mountain Club's Boston Chapter as a trip leader in 2010. Since then he has been an instructor at both the Spring and Winter Introduction to Hiking and Backpacking Programs as well as the Spring and Fall Leadership Programs. In 2012 he became a field instructor with the AMC's flagship Mountain Leadership School. In 2019 he became a field instructor at the Adirondack Mountain Club's flagship Winter Mountaineering School. He and his wife Monica are outdoors most weekends, and together they run their own hiking group. Michael hikes year-round throughout the northeast and has finished the White Mountain 4,000-Footer Grid (each peak during each month). He has also hiked all of the Northeast 115 and the New England Hundred Highest at least once in both summer and winter. Besides the northeast, Michael has also hiked in Arizona, Bolivia, Colorado, and Italy - the highest elevation he has reached is 17,785 feet. When he's not hiking or backpacking, Michael is a volunteer trail maintainer (Caps Ridge Trail) and participates in various kayak and surfski races across New England.

Canceled: Early Snowbird - Skinning & Skiing

Skiing Date: Sat December 12, 2020

Winter is Coming!
It is time to prepare your gear and your body for the upcoming season. The plan is to hike-up and ski-down Pat's Peak near Concord, NH. Pat's Peak has 750 vertical feet and allows skinning on their man-made snow. For those new to 'uphill' travel, there will be AT and telemark volunteers available to teach basics on attaching skins, efficient climbing techniques, as well as heat management. This is an excellent opportunity to practice hiking up, transitions, and skiing down as we will attempt several trips up and down this large hill (almost a mountain). Contact leaders for questions on rentals and/or skins.

For those already familiar with skinning, this is an opportunity to kick out cobwebs and train on snow. This will be an informal gathering and you are welcome to move at your own pace or group up with others or sit out a lap. We will meetup for lunch and afterwards for those interested in apres-ski beverages. There is no cost for this event, but registration is required, particularly for those desiring instruction and info on car pooling.
Until then, Think Snow!
