"rockhopper" posted this unique multisport (with driving) challenge:
Hello FKT community! I'm excited to share a new FKT event. This is not a traditional FKT trail in that it involves multiple disciplines and travel between trails. This multi-sport winter "course" includes ascending the Appalachian Mountain Club hiking trails to the summits of the three New Hampshire 4,000 ft mountains that have downhill ski resorts: Wildcat, Cannon, Mt. Tecumseh and descending each via their ski slopes with downhill equipment in a single day.
I'm here to post the pioneering team effort that I completed with one partner on March 3, 2018. During the effort, progress was tracked with a Garmin Vivoactive HR wearable GPS tracker. link to Garmin Connect page
