Friday Night Kick-off Social

The Friends of Mount Washington Avalanche Center (FOMWAC) are working hard to line things up for the Friday Night Social at International Climbing Equipment in North Conway. We are really happy to have Smuttynose Brewing supporting us again this year. Last year they came through big and they’ll be here again with some frosty beverages for all the attendees registered.

To save time on Saturday we’re also doing early registration Friday night (pretty exciting) but we’ll also be showing some videos, debating the pros and cons of the latest avalanche gear and re-connecting with old friends. FMWAC Logologo-smuttynose
