Weekend Adventures in the Adirondacks!




REMINDER: ALL SPRING BREAK ADVENTURE GRANT APPS ARE DUE WED 4/12!
BOARD MEETINGS!
Come out and see what's happening at weekly MMC meetings! All are welcome, even if you've never been to a meeting. Learn about what we're doing and contribute to planning some of our next events and trips! Bring ideas, friends, and your dinner and meet the rest of the MMC crew on Wednesday at 6pm in our new location--Ross basement seminar room B11!
PHARAOH LAKE WITH MARISSA AND MATT
Friday & Saturday, March 14th-15th
Have you studied Ancient Egypt in school, but never seen a pharaoh in real life? Join Marissa and Matt as they head out to the Adirondacks to explore Pharaoh Lake! We will leave ADK at 12:30pm on Friday, snowshoe in 4.7 easy, flat miles that afternoon, and stay at a beautiful lean-to overlooking the frozen lake that night. After a hot meal and a good night's sleep, we'll wake up Saturday morning and either do a low key hike along the lake or a more intense trek to the summit of Pharaoh Mountain. Then we'll snowshoe back out the way we came in and drive back to campus, arriving before the dining halls close. Sign up here!
GIANT MOUNTAIN WITH ABBY AND TBD GUIDE
Saturday, March 15th
Join us for a dope day hike in the Adirondacks! We will be meeting in Proctor at 7am Saturday morning for breakfast before driving to Giant. The hike is a moderate-strenous about 6 mile round trip to the summit and back! Hiking experience is encouraged. We plan to be back sometime in the late afternoon, and in plenty of time for Proctor dinner. Sign up by emailing achick@middlebury.edu!
SPRING BREAK BACKPACKING WITH TESS & KENT
March 23rd-27th
We are White Mountains Bound! On this 5 day, 4 night trip we will be spending two nights in the hut system (Zealand Falls and Lonesome Lake), and two nights at campsites between those two huts! We will average about seven miles a day with a lot of elevation change. With this in mind we will be taking participants based on experience (backpacking and/or winter experience), not first come first serve. Also, because of reservation deadlines YOU HAVE UNTIL TUESDAY (TMRW) 5PM to express interest and we will make our decisions that evening. Please don't hesitate to email tsneeringer@middlebury.edu with questions prior to the sign-up deadline. Sign-up here!
AVALANCHE LAKE WITH JAKE, ERIN & KENT
Saturday & Sunday, March 15th-16th

Want to get in one more winter adventure this year and ski across a BEAUTIFUL lake in the Adirondacks? Join Jake, Erin, and Kent on a cross-country ski trip to Avalanche Lake! We will meet in Proctor at 7AM on Saturday and drive to the trailhead near Lake Placid. We'll ski 7-8 miles on Saturday, sleep in a lean-to near Marcy Dam, and ski 2-3 miles out the following morning. Sign up here!
