Winter travel is related but notably different than 3-season travel. In particular, it requires a more vigilant attitude, more and changes in gear, and an additional set of skills. On this trip, you will learn how to backpack safely and comfortably in winter conditions, despite this season’s inherent challenges: cold temperatures, stormy weather, avalanche hazards, long nights, snow-covered trails, and moisture management.
I will be the lead guide on this trip, and assisted by Paul Magnanti. This will be the second consecutive year that we have offered this course, and we’re excited to have the opportunity again to share our winter enthusiasm and know-how.
