2018 Mount Washington Memorial Day BBQ and Stackfest

Postby RobRox » Sat May 05, 2018 8:50 am

Even if the patch is small, the 2018 Mount Washington Memorial Day BBQ and Slackfest will be happening on the East Snowfields for all three Memorial Day w/e days, if the road is open*.

I'll put up the bamboo for the 2018 10th Mountain Memorial Day Slalom on all three(*) days....it's not a race, just a way to remember and be grateful for what the 10th did for the world and for us as skiers (and riders and also climbers).

Grills, coolers, lawn furniture, children and dogs will be present....bring your straw hats** :)

** Your favorite hat is also apropos
