UPDATE: Due to CoVid-19, we will be cancelling our final trips.
Our recent Starlight Snowshoe hike was such a success, we decided to offer six (6) more dates…
Join us for a fun time on one or more of six nighttime snowshoe hikes planned for this winter. These will not be high intensity, or high speed hikes. These will be more socially-oriented. We will, in fact, keep them simple marking the 2800′ Mt Willard summit ledges as our goal for the evening. This popular 52 With A View mountain features a fairly straightforward 1.6 mile trail rising about 900-feet. Hike time will be approximately 2 hours up, and about an hour or less down. It’s not a walk in the park, per se — we are talking about the White Mountains — but it will be manageable for most people who consider themselves somewhat to moderately fit. Cost is a low, low $49/person (we normally charge $125 for our half day snowshoe hikes). Pricing does not include gear or gratuity. Snowshoes, headlamps, trekking poles and more may be rented, if needed.

More Information About Gear and Whatnot
Some specialized gear is required, either snowshoes or light traction, for example, depending on actual ground conditions, and you will have to dress ready to hike. Since you will sweat from exertion even when very cold, this means NO COTTON OR DENIM garments. None! Moreover, depending on the weather conditions, you will need multiple layers: base-layers (polypropylene or wool long underwear), mid-layers (fleece), insulating-layers (down puffy), and protective layers (rain gear). Having all these layers, of course, means you will need a pack to put it all in. Additional specialized layers will also be needed, just think about protecting your hands (gloves and mittens), feet (great winter hiking boots and thick wool socks), and face/head (hats, hoods, face masks, goggles). And if all of this isn’t enough, you will also need this additional gear: trekking poles, a good headlamp with batteries, some bite-size snack foods, water in a sealable container. More information about gear will be provided in a PDF attachment to your confirmation email. Also, please note, bring your base layers, the gear mentioned is available to rent, as needed. We even have complete Ready Packs available.
