PLACE: The N.H. Hillclimb Challenge will be held at Pats Peak Ski Area in Henniker N.H. Pats Peak is hosting the race which is put on by the Weare Winter Wanderers Snowmobile Club. Spectators will face a challenge as well. It may be warm and sunny at your home but this is a mountain, dress warm. The Best location for viewing the snowmobile Hillclimb race is high on the race course, and it is steep!! Bring a small shovel to carve out a flat spot to stand. In the evening after all the racing and festivities, some spectators find it hard to stand up in the lodge! Some of the modified sleds racing up the mountain are very LOUD. Bring ear protection for children and yourself.
Event Purpose: The NH Hillclimb Challenge is a race organized by the Weare Winter Wanderers Snowmobile Club as a fundraiser. This race is hosted by Pats Peak Ski Resort in Henniker, NH. The Weare Winter Wanderers Snowmobile club is a NON-PROFIT club dedicated to the sport of snowmobiling. The club was established in 1970 and continues to have some of the original members involved even to this day. We encourage safety and the proper use of snowmobiles. We also work with local landowners, business owners, as well as town, state, and federal government officials to maintain the existing trails and develop new ones when an opportunity presents itself.
Profits generated from the 2013 NH Hillclimb Challenge will directly benefit our trail system through maintenance on the trails and to the existing equipment.
Thank you for supporting the Weare Winter Wanderers, the trail system and the great sport of snowmobiling.
