This course and series of training hikes always finishes to rave reviews and great friendships. It is taught by enthusiastic and knowledgeable hikers and leaders whose main goal is to have you thoroughly enjoy the winter wonderland of the high peaks while being safe and comfortable.
You simply can't find a better group of instructors ... and they all volunteer their time for the love of the sport. Along the way you'll pick up hundreds of tips and techniques garnered from thousands of hikes in New Hampshire and around the world.
This course is one of those life-changing opportunities. It provides you the training and experience to successfully and safely hike in Winter.
Winter Hiking Series DetailsDesigned for EXPERIENCED 3 Season hikers wishing to extend their hiking into the winter months.
We’ll teach you the basics of safe winter travel and give you informed choices for winter gear.
This program includes lectures on hike gear, equipment, energy management, emergency prepareness, group safety, weather, and winter conditions. Starting in the mid-Fall, before you need full winter gear, it shows you what to buy and why with discussions of the advantages of various types of equipment. It is not necessary to buy specialized winter gear before the start of the sessions ... other than MicroSpikes which are mandatory for the start of the series.
The first Saturday session is lectures and discussions as we get to know each other and show you the necessary equipment for later in the course. Sunday we will have our first hike, rain, snow, or shine.
