Three Peak Overnight in the WHITE MOUNTAINS with Caroline, Laura, and Emma
Let's go camping in the Whites! We'll leave early Saturday morning, and spend the afternoon hiking about 5 miles along the jaw dropping Franconia Ridge Trail, hitting three awesome peaks! We'll camp out that night and sing songs by the fire, and generally enjoy the majestic New Hampshire wilderness. The next day we'll hike out about 4 miles and head back to Middlebury. Backpacking and snowshoeing experience is recommended. Sign up Here.
Short Moosalamoo Ski Overnight with Caroline and Ted
This weekend, come on a short and very sweet cross country skiing overnight up the mountain of Moosalamoo, the favorite peak of Vermont cows! Enjoy amazing views of Lake Dunmore and forage your way through the beautiful Green Mountain National Forest. Trip is open to all skills levels of backcountry skiers, you can learn how when you come! We will be meeting Saturday morning 9:30 and will be getting back before noon on Sunday so you have enough time to do your homework or yoga or whatever! Sign up Here.

Fireside this Friday
Pizza-Sushi-Chili dinner in Brooker this Friday at 7:00. It's going to be great. Bring your own bowl!
We're On for Grill Delivery this Week
Come on down and help run food across campus to students who are too bogged down with work to get it themselves. Or, if you find yourself hungry and carrying cash, go ahead and call in an order of your own at (802) 443-5014. All tips go to the Mountain Club to help feed you on later trips! What a beautiful, edible cycle. Through Thursday, 9-11.
Open Space on Spring Break Ski Trip
Special reward for reading all the way to the bottom this week: there's a spot on our spring break ski trip to the Chic-Chocs of Quebec. If you don't have plans, this is a fantastic chance for some hut to hut Nordic touring in the fantastic Parc National de la Gasp├ęsie. You must have Nordic skiing and backpacking experience and a passport to come. The fee is $145. Email ppeltzer@middlebury.edu if you want more information.
