Tickets are now available for the Mount Washington Backcountry Ski Festival, taking place Feb. 24-27 in the White Mountains.
Ticket holders can take part in four days of events, each tailored with a different lens to highlight the backcountry industry, and punctuated with three nightly après ski events. Using Intervale’s Ledge Brewing Company as its basecamp throughout the event, skiers and winter enthusiasts will kick off each day at the brewery, before embarking on their adventures, and returning to discuss the day’s experiences.
“Our location at the epicenter of the backcountry scene on the east coast makes this event the premier backcountry skiing festival in the Northeast,” festival director Tyler Ray said. “We are focusing our efforts in three areas — socials, clinics, and competitions — to cultivate a strong and educated backcountry community. But the reality is this event is for anyone that loves the outdoors, and that’s our secret sauce. This community is welcoming and open to all. It’s a can’t-miss wintertime event.”
