Two Brothers for the Win

This was a big deal. A tough mountain, for sure, against two brothers in it to win it, resulting in the deep satisfaction of sore legs only hikers and other outdoorsy freaks of nature can understand and appreciate. These two got it, neither strangers to working hard toward far away goals. The cardio, the sweat, the drive and exhilaration. Both have dug deep in the past, […]

Willard Wedding

If one mountain rises above the rest in terms of having officiated weddings there, the 2850′ Mt Willard in Crawford Notch takes the prize. One of the 52-With-A-View mountains, Mt Willard not only features a reasonable hike in for a lot of folks, the views gained upon reaching the top are stunning, to say the least. Thus, it’s no surprise Redline Guide and JP Mike Cherim […]

Mountain Variety Show

Within a twenty mile radius of our location in Intervale is an incredible amount to do, particularly when it comes outdoor activities and adventure. Not to say there isn’t a lot to do indoors — shopping, learning, entertainment, and other fun attractions — there is, but we’re a guiding company planted smack dab in the mountains so what do you expect us to talk about? Why […]

Educational LNT Video

Leave No Trace (LNT) is a detailed subject with certain nuances, some of which we go over in an article we wrote some time ago. As a lighter introduction, however, we decided to put together this little educational video (below). This was done with the help of Redline Guides Mike Cherim (host, script, direction), Mike Maciel (videographer and consultant), and Pat Ferland (consultant). Pat is an […]

Should People Feed Gray Jays?

That little question about whether or not people should feed gray jays is one of those hot-button topics. Answers will range from a flatly given “HELL NO” claiming this action will disrupt the very balance of nature to an enthusiastic “HELL YES” claiming it’s harmless, fun, and cool. The right answer is in there somewhere and we will try to flesh it out. The hope is […]

A Few Thousand Feet

Is backcountry ski touring on again? We thought it was spring. The difference a few thousand feet makes becomes all the more apparent in the spring with its more extreme valley-to-mountain juxtaposition. Literally yesterday we foraged in the Mt Washington Valley for ramps (a wild onion) and fiddlehead ferns — succeeding on both fronts. Down low some flowers are poking up through the mulch, crocuses for […]

Week 17 (2022) in Review

We stay pretty busy year ’round. Particularly winter and summer/fall with the latter being our busiest of all. Late fall slows down for a few well appreciated minutes, as does spring. As evidenced by the short video. But, enjoy it nonetheless. It features a wedding atop Mt Moosilauke — we just posted about it — and yet even more backcountry skiing with Redline Guide Dominic Torro. […]

Moosilauke Marriage

A rather grand mountain as 4000-footers go, and one bearing a nice alpine expanse at its summit, the 4802′ Mt Moosilauke became the choice wedding venue for one Vermont couple. We won’t show recognizable photos or mention names, at the couple’s request (we always ask), but we can show images of the scene and take this opportunity to again say congratulations. The images we will show […]

Ski the Weekend

On a mountain that, to many people, seems so very far away at this moment, winter rages on. Down in the Valley views include hillsides bearing thinning white stripes that used to be fat green circle, blue square, or black diamond ski runs. Everything is now brown, gray, or green. Down here we got some snow this morning, but it changed to rain and it went […]

Getting Help in the Mountains

She was taking a full day navigation course with us in preparation for a solo thru-hike of the 100-Mile Wilderness in Maine. In that class, even though it is not an orienteering course, per se, we do discuss what to do if you find yourself lost on a hike. We always suggest looking behind you for starters. People are turned and misdirected by water bars and […]

Week 15 (2022) in Review

The whole video compilation thing seems to be sticking. Inasmuch, another one has been created and features Redline Guides Ryan McGuire, Dominic Torro (x2), Will Murphy, and Mike Cherim all doing their thing. Specifically mountaineering, backcountry skiing (x2), alpine ice climbing, and a “tourist tour” hiking/walking exploration. Check it all out in the following video. Thank you for adventuring with Redline Guiding.

The Spring Mix

Does “Spring Mix describe a bagged salad? Well, yes, but here in the Mt Washington Valley the Spring Mix best describes the myriad adventures and educational opportunities that present themselves at this time of year. What follows is a short video re-cap of some of the cool stuff we did over the past few days. Activities include a Basic Mountaineering Skills course (educational program) led by […]
