Winter 2017 Updates

Winter 2017 Updates


Dear Friends,

We are moving through March with snow guns blowing at Cannon Mountain! It’s been another interesting winter for weather with everything from blue-bird powder days to spring melts and back to winter again. However, we are not ready to give up on winter  just yet and will be skiing and riding through March.  
Don’t forget to join us for BodeFEST on Saturday, March 25, 2017. Check out the TRF website for more info:

If you haven’t been around the North Country this winter, here is a peek at what you missed!

YTD we have had 127 participants and 103 volunteers join us for recreation fun! We’ve seen growth in our Alpine Skiing, Snowshoeing, and Climbing programs so far and look forward to seeing more participation in the upcoming seasons.

ASPNC’s latest adaptive equipment purchase is a Trikke Skki. This unique ski allows stand up adaptive skiers the ability to have more freedom and control over their skiing experience. The Trikke Skki is easily adjustable for youth or adults and the learning progression is a safe and relatively swift process. Check it out if you haven’t already!

Pirates and Wenches showed up by the boatload on Saturday, February 4th, for a super fun and successful Pirates of the High Skis! If you missed it, mark your calendar for next year – Saturday, February 3, 2018.




North Country Sled Dogs

Our newly formed sled hockey team for players with and without disabilities. A special Thank You to Turtle Ridge Foundation for their support in helping to fund ice time for the team at Fenton Chester Ice Arena!

And who can’t help but to think about our mountain tops being covered in green leaves and sunshine? We are, and we would love for you to be thinking about participating or volunteering for ASPNC spring/summer/fall programs.

We are also looking for a super special someone to be a Summer Intern. For more information about an internship, please contact me at 603-823-5232 or email

Best Regards,
Sandy Olney

Participant Spotlight
Marsha Gray

In 2014, Marsha Gray, a resident of Waterford, VT, read about ASPNC’s Sunrise Ascent on Mt. Washington and called us to see how she could get involved. Since then, Marsha has participated
in two Sunrise Ascents as well as many of our seasonal programs including walking, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking and biking.
Marsha’s perseverance has kept her coming back to ASPNC after recovering from double knee replacements and a broken back. After a recent snowshoe outing at the Rocks Estate, Marsha expressed how ASPNC changed her life, “ASPNC helped me to get back out in the fresh air. If it wasn’t for ASPNC, none of this would be possible. I am very grateful for all the help from the volunteers – they are really a godsend.”

We feel just as fortunate to have Marsha as part of ASPNC!

Give a life enriching gift… support our many year-round sport, recreation, and wellness opportunities!
