Piercing the Storm

While Mike was helping a couple tie the knot on the 2800′ Mt Willard, Redline Guide Ken Hodges was leading one returning guest across the street on an attempt of the 4310′ Mt Pierce — one of New Hampshire’s 48* 4000-footers (*subject to change). If you read that other article, you know the wind was howling. The temperatures weren’t very cold, though, but the windchill greatly […]

Wild Winter Wedding

The 2800′ Mt Willard is one of the 52 With A View Peaks. Due to the fairly easy hike in and its stunning ledges, it’s a popular location for mountain top weddings, but it is a mountain so sometimes the weather can be rough. Not as rough as we’d seen it on Sunday, February 24, 2019, though. That was the wedding day of Kelsey and Norbert, […]

What to do in March

Get while the gettin’ is good, as they say. That’s what the month of March is all about here at Redline Guiding. We have tons of snow both in the Mt Washington Valley as well as in the White Mountains, with even more in the forecast! And you know snow, it’s that perfect ingredient for so many cool activities. Here are a few of our most […]

Dual Adventure

Skiing in the backcountry or snowshoeing, either was fine. Whichever, Sarah told us, as long as it was fun for her and her wife, Christy — whose recent birthday was the cause for this celebratory adventure. She didn’t want something too over the top in terms of being adrenaline-inducing. In other words, let’s stick to some “type one” fun that we can enjoy while we’re doing […]

Sensing the Whites

People who don’t get up-close and personal or tramp upon our mountains — or any mountains, really — will probably lack understanding. Understanding, for instance, that moutain weather is usually temperamental, colder, windier, and can even more dangerous. Or understanding of how it feels to exert oneself step after step for thousands of steps, digging deep within, then reaping the reward of the joy of arrival. […]

To Hale with Wildcat A…

Or perhaps should we write To Hale, with Wildcat A Added Two Days Later. The 4054′ Mt Hale and 4422′ Wildcat A were but two of the mountains that re-returning guest, Alex, needed for his still-in-progress quest to conquer New Hampshire’s 4000-footers. These were not this weekend’s intended targets, however, but the forecast for high winds and nastiness prompted both Redline Guide Ryan Mcguire and our […]

Climb into a Cloud

Clear skies yielded to clouds, calmness became the wind, and through it all a team of four persevered and made it to the cloud shrouded summit of the 6288′ Mount Washington. One climber, interviewed after the adventure, declared it to be the toughest thing they had ever done and that their muscles were very, very sore. They went on, however, to express that they felt no […]

Weddings to the Wild

The producers of PBS’s Windows to the Wild with Willem Lange reached out many months ago asking if we wanted to help them with a segment about a mountain top wedding. First they wanted to know if we knew of a bride and groom scheduled for a summit wedding who might be willing to share their day with literally anyone and everyone tuning into the program. […]
