Mount Washington Auto Road - Ski, Snowshoe, Fatbike to the Clouds

1 Mount Washington Auto Road

Gorham, New Hampshire 

03581


 Long referred to as “North America’s Toughest 10K”, the Ski, Shoe & Fatbike to the Clouds course has an average grade of 12% over the last 6K as you climb the final 2,200 vertical feet. While there will be competitors who are seeking to make or break a record, for others it is the ultimate way to personally test themselves in one of nature’s most spectacular environments.

 

After covering 4k on the Nordic system, racers will have the Mt. Washington Auto Road to themselves as remarkable views of the Presidential Range and beyond reveal themselves. On race day, there will be a mass start of cross country skiers at 10 am, followed by the snowshoe start at 10:05 am and Fatbikers at 10:10 am. Ski, Shoe & Fatbike to the Clouds is considered a true freestyle event, there will not be separate classes for classic and skate skiing. This is NOT an event for inexperienced fatbikers, skiers or snowshoers!

Nature Learning Center, Albany

Bobcats are the most common wild cat in the country, but how common and widely distributed are they in New Hampshire? Declining populations in 1989 led to the closure of the bobcat hunting and trapping season. How is this species currently managed and what will future conservation efforts include? Join Patrick Tate, Wildlife Biologist with NH Fish & Game, for an update on the state’s bobcat population.

 

The EcoForum lunchtime lecture series is sponsored by The Flatbread Company of North Conway and Frontside Grind Coffee Roasters.  EcoForums are free and open to the public and are presented at noon on the second Thursday of each month at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany. The community is urged to attend to learn more about salient issues facing our natural environment and to hear the views of thought-provoking speakers.

Author Luncheon with Diane Les Besquets

Moat Mt. Smoke House and Brewery


Luncheon and author talk with DIANE LES BECQUETS, author of THE LAST WOMAN IN THE FOREST

Location: Moat Mt. Smoke House & Brewing Co., North Conway

Tickets for $20, which includes luncheon, author talk and donation to North Conway Library.

Tickets can be purchased through the bookstore, call 603-356-3200, or North Conway Library, call 603-356-2961, by March 13.

We are excited to be hosting Diane Les Becquets, author of THE LAST WOMAN IN THE FOREST (March 5, 2019) and BREAKING WILD, an Indie Next Pick and a national bestseller.

Some women are born wild. Some are made.

THE LAST WOMAN IN THE FOREST is a riveting and powerful thriller about a woman whose greatest threat could be the man she loves.…

Marian Engström has found her true calling: working with rescue dogs to help protect endangered wildlife. Her first assignment takes her to northern Alberta where she falls in love with her mentor, the daring and brilliant Tate. While separated from each other on another assignment, Marian is shattered to learn of Tate’s tragic death. Worse still is the aftermath in which she discovers disturbing inconsistencies about Tate’s life and begins to wonder if the man she loved could have been responsible for the unsolved murders of at least four women.

Diane Les Becquets is a volunteer at Back in the Saddle Equine Therapy Center and an avid outdoors woman, enjoying archery, bicycling, snowshoeing, swimming, and backpacking with her dog, Izzy. Before moving to New Hampshire, where she now resides with her husband, she lived in a small ranching town in Northwestern Colorado for almost fourteen years, raising her three sons.
