Winter Wild is Back! #cbhm

Chad Denning, the founder of the Winter Wild series, tragically passed away earlier this year. Chad directed many events in his life but Winter Wild was his brainchild; truly capturing his spirit and energy. Chad Denning was a man of adventure and exploration of all outdoor pursuits and as a tribute to Chad’s legacy, vision, and passion, a small group of his friends will carry on the Winter Wild tradition in his honor.

Winter Wild was born in 2010 at Whaleback Mountain. Inspired by Colorado’s “Up-hilling Series”, Winter Wild consists of getting up and down a mountain as quickly as possible by means of running, skiing or snowboarding, snowshoeing, or hiking the course.

This year’s races will include:
January 31 at Ragged Mountain in Danbury, N.H.
February 14 at Pats Peak in Henniker, N.H.
February 28 at Mount Sunapee in Sunapee, N.H.

[With the full intention of returning to a full series next year]
Chad loved to compete, but more than anything he loved to see people enjoyin…
