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


Trail: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/new-hampshire/mount-tecumseh-trail-via-waterville-trailhead?mobileMap=false&ref=sidebar-static-map


Expectations:


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)


Microspikes


Gaiters


Waterproof and windproof pants & shell jacket.


Non-cotton layering system, which includes a base layer.


Insulated coat


Snow pants (optional)


Hat


Winter Gloves


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)


extra socks


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.


PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING SCREENING QUESTIONS BEFORE SIGNING UP


1: Do you have all of the gear listed above?


2: What recent winter hikes have you completed (include elevation and distance)?


3. Do you feel comfortable hiking at a pace of at least 1 mph?


If you have questions, including about the required gear, feel free to comment below and I will respond as soon as possible!
