The sun is higher in the sky for that glacier frying pan feel, and large, safe practice “glaciers” are available for training purposes. We just created this course this winter and we’ve been pleasantly surprised on how popular it has been and how much fun it is — both for us […]

A Permit to Hike… Finally

CONCORD, NH — Good news, maybe, depending on your point-of-view. From here on out inadequate search and rescue budgets be damned, negative environmental impacts a thing of the past, and those oh-so-hated summit crowds now nevermore. Why? A new federally-issued “New Hampshire Backcountry Permit” — slated to go into effect as early as the spring of 2018 — looks to end these and other user-related problems […]

Run Ryan, Run

We’re pleased to announce the newest member of the Redline Guiding Team: Ryan Welts. If that name sounds familiar, you must be into White Mountain legends because Ryan is pretty well known in some circles for his amazing feats and, further, for the source of inspiration that he is.

Two More New “Woofers”

Even more congratulations are in order, this time to Redline Guiding Mountain Guides Liz Wyman and Álvaro Marques for also completing their schooling and earning their Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certifications. As noted, since protecting our guests and others we may lead by being ready to meet their basic emergency medical needs in the mountains is critically important (and a requirement before leading), we are extremely […]

A Day in the Life: AMC Trail Crew

Ever wonder about the trails we hike on? Their history, who made them, who maintains them. I know that some of us personally volunteer to maintain trails. The US Forest Service works hard on some and also manages some of the volunteers. Also, there are volunteer organizations like the Trailwrights, and last but not least, the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC). The AMC maintains hundreds of miles […]
