The Great Mazda Mountain Climb 2015

Hello everyone, it's my pleasure to announce to you:



3rd Annual Great Mazda Climb!

Hosted By: NEMAC (Formerly NEM6)
Date and Time: Saturday, August 1st 2015

Register Here!

Admission:
Adults (13+): $30
Kids (5 - 12): $15
Under 5: Free

Full Itinerary Here

Unfortunately, the mountain climb officials require payment for the use of their roads, and since the roads require so much maintenance, they were forced to raise their prices. The prices listed above will include your meal for the day, plus 10 raffle tickets.

The event is still very much in the makings, but we've got some great ideas for everyone this year. For those of you who missed the original event at this location, you can view it here: http://forum.mazda6club.com/usa/2558...ain-climb.html

This year, we will be returning to the location of the original mountain climb at beautiful Mt. Washington in Gorham, NH.

Preceding the event will be a long, very fun drive on one of the most scenic roads in New England, the amazing Kancamagus Highway..

We will be having a cookout and raffle just like last time. More details are to come, so start spreading the word now!

Some of our favorite pics from the 1st annual event:




Parking Map:


We are still very much open for suggestions for event details, so please discuss any ideas/thoughts/concerns here.

Group Rate: 2 Nights and Tax Included
2 Bedroom non A/C - ($190/night) - $414.20
2 Bedroom A/C - ($205/night) - $446.90
Townhouse with A/C (1 bedroom with sleeping loft) - ($220/night) - $479.60
Penthouse non A/C (2 bedroom with sleeping loft) - ($220/night) - $479.60
Penthouse A/C (2 bedroom with sleeping loft) - ($245/night) - $491.09

Group Rate: 3 Nights and Tax Included
2 Bedroom non A/C - ($166.33/night) - $543.89
2 Bedroom A/C - ($191.65/night) - $574.97
Townhouse with A/C (1 bedroom with sleeping loft) - ($206.19/night) - $618.57
Penthouse non A/C (2 bedroom with sleeping loft) - ($206.19/night) - $479.60
Penthouse A/C (2 bedroom with sleeping loft) - ($227.99/night) - $683.97

Couple things to note:
  • All 3 Night prices include an optional 4th night free if interested.
  • You MUST call to get the group rate, online reservations will not work. The phone numbers are: 800-332-6636 OR 603-374-2361
  • When calling, be sure to let them know you're looking for the "Great Mazda Climb Group" section or rate.

That should be all you need. It would appear, with a 3 night stay, the resort is taking about 25% off as a group rate for us. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Reviews of the nearby hotels from a forum-goer:

North Conway Hotels | North Conway Grand Hotel | NH
Can be a bit pricey, but keep an eye on their site as they often run specials. Excellent place to stay though. Have stayed 3 or 4 times and it has been top notch every time.

Green Granite Inn, a North Conway Hotel
Stayed here once when the above hotel was full. Not bad, but not as nice as ^^^. Perfectly acceptable accommodations, just not as nice.

The Seasons Condominium Resort - Affordable Family Resort in Mt.Washington Valley
This is condo resort and could be an unbeatable value if some want to travel as a group. They are all individually owned so your mileage may vary, but the unit we stayed in was great except for the limited supply of hot water. (If you don't take 3 showers back-to-back it was fine.) The clubhouse/gameroom/indoor pool area is a bit dated but everything was functional when we went last December. Rates of 130/night for a 2-bedroom becomes very easy to swallow when you start dividing it up. And you get the option of bringing your own food if you don't want to eat out. It's north of North Conway, but actually puts you a bit closer to the Auto Road (23 vs. 34 minutes according to GoogleMaps)


North Conway is THE place to kill time in the off hours as there's lots of restaurants, shopping, and other activities. It's not too far from the base of the Auto Road and the drive between the two is nice. Someone mentioned Mount Washington Cog Railway - Climb to the Top of Mount Washington on the world's first mountain-climbing Cog Railway trains! and I will just chime in with this: EXPENSIVE! Priced to match the steep grade of the Jacob's ladder trestle (300' long at a grade of 37.41%) at $62 per adult. Don't get me wrong it's a good once-in-a-lifetime trip, but it is on the other side of the mountain from where most will be staying (55 minutes) and I didn't want to have someone drive all that way only to have a coronary due to sticker shock.
And my own, personal experience:

Edit: I'd like to revise this original experience to mention that the current rates for the hotel are quite steep (~$300/night) and I do not think that it's worth such a high price to stay here.

If you want to cook again I'm sure we can have that arranged somehow. Was a blast the first year we held it.

The biggest issue is we don't have your huge truck this year, so we'll have to have people trying to tote things up either ahead of time or shared between a few cars.

I know between my pop up tent, all the raffle stuff, and everything else, even my trunk was full haha.

You forget I have a CX9. I think I can manage a good amount of it between the roof racks and the back. I just can't fold down all my seats since I have the baby seat. I can strap my tent to the roof of the CX9 if need be.

I did forget that haha. Kept thinking you only had the suburban. Okay well that thing fits a ton in it, my parents have one. This still all depends on our group's funding as well, we may be able to have some sort of catering or something along with the grills.

Yeah the Burban fits a ton but not very baby friendly/cheap to drive. So we would have the CX9. I still have one of my small grills and Wim has all the hotplates we used from the first climb. I see tables as the difficult thing to transport/source but I am sure we can come up with something.

Yeah the tables are the big thing for sure. Maybe we could get @Lara6 to show up with her Xterra and bring the tables haha.

Going to have to have a meeting about all this stuff soon.

Also, @Mr.Smoke please start spreading the word to the Canucks. I've got a guy in my group who's going to be posting the thread on a few forums. JD is in the area and has volunteered to start getting the info out around your whole area.
