Are you excited about shredding the patriarchy?

Come join us as we rip up and down all 350 feet of King Pine in an unlikely attempt to fend off hypothermia!

This trip is for women and nonbinary beings who are confident downhill skiers and would like to learn how to use alpine touring (AT) ski gear (or get more practice!) (...and Paul/Nico, our local friendly Frenchmen). We'll be headed to King Pine, a local downhill ski resort in Madison, NH where the high will be a balmy 7F.

Due to the low temps, we will likely be getting a late start to the day, bundling up, throwing on some down skirts, drinking hot chocolate, and learning the hypothermia dance. We'll also be doing some some skinning up, skiing down, and learning to transition efficiently between the two.

Since this trip is at a resort, there is an additional $10 fee to buy an uphill ticket.
