Welcome to the Mt Washington Backcountry Ski Festival!

A gathering in the White Mountains of New Hampshire for backcountry skiers and riders of all abilities. Hosted by Synnott Mountain Guides and Ragged Mountain Equipment. A limited supply of 2020 Festival T-Shirts are available for sale. Stay up to date with festival news by joining our Email List or connecting on Facebook.

Whether you're an alpine skier looking to make the transition into the backcountry or a seasoned ski mountaineer, the Mt Washington Backcountry Ski Festival has a variety of options throughout the weekend. Have an adventure in the White Mountains while you learn new skills during full-day courses! Our experienced guides will be leading skiers in sessions geared for different interests and skill levels, such as Intro to Backcountry Skiing; Avalanche Awareness & Rescue; and Ski Mountaineering.  Festival participants can also ski on their own, enjoying beautiful terrain and gear demos.  You can also join us at the après ski social hours and evening events.

All proceeds from the evening raffles and silent auction at the Mt Washington Backcountry Ski Festival will go towards Granite Backcountry Alliance and Friends of Tuckerman Ravine. In 2019, we raised $4,664.73!
