Family Snowshoe Overnight to Windblown East Glade Shelter (w/Woodburning Stove), New Ipswich, NH

Family Date: Sat February 23, 2019 - Sun February 24, 2019

We will snowshoe the Windblown XC center trails approximately one mile from our cars to overnight at the Windblown East Glade shelter. The shelter is a 3-sided Adirondack shelter, but with the welcoming addition of a woodburning stove, a well-kept outhouse, and a firepit as well as breath-taking views to the east. After arriving we have the option to summit Barrett Mountain (1,853'), a bit less then 2 miles round trip.

We will make group dinner and enjoy evening smores around the fire pit before hunkering down for a cold winter night. We'll do breakfast in the morning and then enjoy a leisurely walk back out.

BE AWARE: overnight temps may likely be in the single digits. appropriate winter gear is essential including winter sleeping bags- usually rated for 0 degrees* (we may be able to help with bags and snowshoes). For obvious safety reasons, screening for the trip- gear, experience, fitness- will be strict. * equipment requirements may be adjusted slightly with the nearing forecast. The trip will be cancelled if conditions are extreme and pose increased safety concerns.

If you are adventurous, want to enjoy the splendor of winter outdoors (maybe freeze your tush of a little) and are properly equipped, come join us. $50pp includes accommodations, dinner, breakfast, and your Windblown trail fees.
