Mt. Tecumseh is ideal for winter. There aren’t any ledges or excruciatingly steep sections that require crampons (except during extreme icy periods), snow is typically plentiful (they ain’t called the White Mountains for nothing, folks), and because the trailhead is located at Waterville Valley Ski Area, you know the parking lot will be plowed!
Distance to summit: 2.5 miles makes 5 miles roundtrip
Elevation gain: 2,200 feet
Time: 2-4 hours
Difficulty: Weekend Warriors
We have winter and the temperatures will be low especially at higher altitudes. There we need to be prepared for these conditions and have the required gear below. You are joining like-minded enthusiasts and are responsible for your own safety and preparedness. You are responsible for having a map of this hike (digital/physical); this is not a guided hike and you agree and follow the COVID guidelines.
What to bring:
Waterproof, winter-hiking boots
Snowshoes (If necessary)
Waterproof and windproof pants & shell jacket.
Non-cotton layering system, which includes a base layer.
Snow pants (optional)
Facemask and Googles
Headlamp (in case we hike into the night due to early sunsets)
2-3 liters of water that won't freeze. (Insulated water bottle or other method)
Food (Snacks/lunch). You will be burning a lot of energy!
Hand and toe warmers (optional)
Extra battery for electronics and water proof container/bag for electronics/valuables (optional)
I will check gear for this hike at the pick-up location and at the trailhead for non-carpoolers. For your safety and the safety of the other hikers, you will not be allowed to join the hike without proper gear.
