WATERVILLE VALLEY OFFERS UNIQUE CHALLENGE: CLIMB FIVE MOUNTAINS IN A SINGLE WEEKEND
Industry: Sports Travel       

The event, nicknamed “The Denali Challenge” will be held August 15 to 17 in the resort in the middle of the White Mountain National Forest.

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - July 31st, 2014 -

Waterville Valley, NH – With more than a dozen 4,000-foot peaks surrounding Waterville Valley, NH contestants in a fun hiking challenge are being asked to climb five of them in a single weekend.  That is the gist of the Waterville Valley 5 Summit Challenge, a 20,000-foot total that is almost the height of the highest point in the U.S., Alaska’s Mount Denali.

The event, nicknamed “The Denali Challenge” will be held August 15 to 17 in the resort in the middle of the White Mountain National Forest.

“After the great success we had last year we hope to attract a number of families as well as avid hikers who are drawn by the beauty of the White Mountain National Forest,” said event chair, Bob Fries. “In so doing we will be able to showcase the peaks around Waterville Valley as well as the natural features of the National Forest.“

Organizers selected Waterville Valley because it is surrounded by some of New England’s highest peaks. Entrants in the 5 Summit Challenge will hike (or try to hike) 5 peaks. There will be a choice of 8-10 mountains to climb and the 5 peaks chosen must equal 20,000-feet or higher. 

The mountains will be posted one week before the climb. Those who conquer all five will be proclaimed “Alive After Five”.

The weekend will include intense hiking for some, but will also offer easier hikes for families, games and entertainment. On Saturday and Sunday there will be “family” beginner guided hikes.

There is no fee to be part of the event. And, a special commemorative gift and a t-shirt will be given to all participants. On Sunday after the hikes at Legends there will be a barbecue. There is a $10 charge, which can be paid in advance or at the door. Sponsors include Woodstock Inn’s 4000’ Footer Beer, the Waterville Valley Foundation and the Waterville Valley Resort Association.
