We are super excited to launch this event to announce several glade skiing projects in the states of NH and ME and join different trail groups from across the northeast for one night of shindiggery goodness!! 

We will have several guest speakers including the keynote speaker and godfather of northeast b/c skiing David Goodman (author of Appalachian Mountain Club's Best Backcountry Skiing in the Northeast). David will discuss the issues related with trail disclosure, secret stashes, the 4th edition, and changes in backcountry skiing since his first book in 1989. 

Liz Burakowski from Protect Our Winters will be taking the floor talking about this wacky winter and what it means for GBA's glading projects and winter recreation in the future! 

We’ll also have Catamount Trail Association, RASTA, Vermont Backcountry Alliance and GBA’s Granbassadors Ben Leoni and Andrew Drummond!

Music from BlueBus Semimobile Orchestra and plenty of appetizers, vendors, raffles, auctions and FUN! More to come and hopefully a few surprises too!
