Description Never snowshoed and would like to try, or want to get back into winter sport mode… this trip to the Paradise Meadow trails at Mt Washington is for you. These trails are all maintained, tracked  (thus the charge) and well-signed so all we have to do is enjoy ourselves. The trails wind through woods and over the meadows, with beautiful views to the surrounding mountains, and vary from easy and mostly flat to more hills. We will start with the easy trail, doing more if/as the group wishes. Weather permitting, we will stop for a lunch break on the trail, bring lunch and a waterproof sit-upon as we will be sitting in snow. And be sure to bring water…snowshoeing at altitude is a good workout, even on the easier trails. Snowshoe rentals and a cafeteria at Raven Lodge, the Nordic centre. Bring poles if you wish. Expect to be back on the 4:30 ferry.
Meeting Place QI Ferry terminal, carpooling to be determined
