Ever wonder what happens on Eboard trips?

Come experience it firsthand at Mount Whiteface in Sandwich, NH!

Mount Whiteface was the location for our 2015 Eboard trip. It’s a fun, relaxing, and beautiful hike on the Sandwich range of the White Mountains in New Hampshire. The difficult sections of the hike are steep but short. Come out and enjoy the fall foliage!

 

Difficulty: Medium

The hike is approximately 7 miles. Should take about 6-7 hours including breaks and lunch. We have the option to hike further to the nearby peak of Mount Passaconway, which would be an addition of 4 miles total.

 

When: Most likely leave late on Friday night and get back Sunday afternoon. We will need to get up early for the hike!

 

Things to bring:

Hiking boots highly preferable, sneakers/shoes with traction okay. No open toed shoes!

Water, and lots of it!

Snacks and 2 lunches

Warm winter cloths. It will get VERY cold at night. Consider gloves/hats. No jeans.

BUOC Waiver Form (Accessible here). Don’t do the SAO form.

 

We will provide camping equipment, dinner, and breakfasts.

Cost: $30 for members and $40 for non-members, covers transportation, gear, camping fee, 2 breakfasts and dinner.
