Happy September to everyone! In the photo below, some SNSC Sunday hikers find the ski conditions “marginal” — However, it is time to think about winter 2013! We have lots of news for you in this issue. Don’t miss the list of important dates.
Mount Washington nordic season’s passes
Mount Washington nordic season’s passes are on sale, and you only have until September 30 to cash in on earlybird savings! You can learn more and buy passes on the Mount Washington website.
If you plan to ski outside of your Saturday or Sunday program day, you want to consider purchasing a season’s pass. Alternately, you can buy single trail passes, or if you are skiing mainly on your program day, special program passes are available for your program day. Remember, you need a Mount Washington Seasons’ pass or a trail pass to be on the trails in the winter!
Registration opens on October 1 for winter 2013 programs! Starting at that time, you can find a link to online registration on the club website. The deadline for earlybird prices for programs is November 30.
Read about SNSC programs and program prices on the Programs pages. Note: HST will be added when you register. You can also find membership fees at the top of the Programs page.
When it comes to gear, here are a few leads:
* Ski Tak Hut is open if you are looking for new gear.
* You can see information below about the AGM and Ski Swap, where you can find used gear.
* Mount Washington has given us their rental prices for Program participants. Find these on thePreparing for the Season page.
