Early Risers Make Inaugural Dawn Patrol Charity Uphill Tour a Success

A handful of passionate alpine touring enthusiasts headed up Whiteface at 6 am on March 18th for the Inaugural Dawn Patrol Charity Uphill Tour.

The Mountaineer partnered with Whiteface Mountain to host the event which supported the new and growing Keene Kids Cross-Country Ski Club.

The Mountaineer hopes to host this event again next March in a slightly expanded format (hint: demos and a later start) – a big thank you to all who attended, and to Dynafit for their support of the event. Stay tuned for details of next year’s event!
