Hope you are having a great snowy Tuesday and a great Presidents day. We have a meeting this Wednesday at 7:30 in 300 Richards Hall. With all the snow we’ve been having get ready to get stoked for Intro to Backcountry Skiing by listening to Lou Cassano and Tim Dyson give a talk about their adventure on Mt Katahdin.
Interesting outdoor fact of the week:
Last Sunday night Mt. Washington, NH was the coldest location on the earth with a temperature of -85 degrees(wind chill included). It was colder then Antarctica and the North Pole. What is the coldest temperature you have ever been exposed to?
See you guys all there.
Luckily the snow will hold up long enough to allow us to meet this week. Our meeting this week will be at 300 Richards Hall at 7:30. Come tell us what you did on these two snow days! and what you will potentially this Thursday (yes there is more snow coming.)
Fact of the week: Between 46 and 50 quadrillion snowflakes fell on Boston in the week’s storm! It was easy to count because none of them are the same.
We have a meeting this week at 7:00 in 300 Richards hall. It’s going to be great time as we share all the great things we have done over the last two weeks in the snow, so you guys should all come!
Fact: It is possible to ski the east from later October/early November till early July(weather depending). How many days are you guys at?
See you guys there!
Unfortunately our meeting for tomorrow has been cancelled due to school cancellation. Not so unfortunate has been the snow these last 48 hours! Hope you guys all got out and where able to enjoy the snow. Let us know what you have been doing by tagging Nuhoc Loj on facebook or @wegoontrips on instagram and twitter.
For the fact of week I decided to educate ourselves about snow:
The most snow to fall in any 24 hour period(Continental US) is 75.8 inches , well over six feet, at Silver Lake, Colorado. The most we have ever gotten on the east coast is 49 inches on Mount Washington, New Hampshire during a Feb 25, 1969 blizzard. So I guess we could always hope for more!
Happy new year and welcome back from winter break! I hope you were able to so some pretty awesomely epic stuff in the outdoors the last few weeks! Come to our first meeting of the semester tomorrow (Wednesday, per usual) at 7:30pm in 300 Richards! We’ll be sharing stories of cool trips, starting signups for the first trips of the year, and getting stoked for another winter in New England! Don’t miss out!
