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 […]

Some Washington Redlines

Redlining — hiking all of the trails in the AMC’s White Mountain Guidebook — was one the objectives of a returning guest and ultrarunner Monday. The other objective was to winter summit the 6288′ Mt Washington and to do so via the classic Lion Head Trail’s “winter route” (the standard routing closes due to avalanche danger). The redlining part, initially, was to include needed sections of […]

Another First Responder

We love it when our guides increase their knowledge, making themselves better guides. Taking classes, for example, to earn their Wilderness First Responder (WFR) credentials. That’s what Redline Guide Cindy Zhou just did, earning her SOLO WFR (and renewing her CPR/AED in the process) through the University of Massachusetts in Lowell, which hosted the course. Congratulations Cindy! Earning your WFR is awesome! Well done!

Katie Vaughan Joins the Team

Extreme Snowmobile Wedding

A snowmobile wedding is what they wanted, and being that Redline Guide and Justice of the Peace Mike Cherim used to ride and once owned his own snow machine, a snowmobile wedding is what they got. Since Mike is no longer a snowmobile owner, however, and our guests didn’t have machines of their own either, they enlisted the help of Northern Extremes in Bartlett, NH, to […]

Last 2018 Washington

On the day of New Year’s Eve Redline Guide Ken Hodges took a returning couple he had been training the day before. He led them up the Lion Head Trail — the quasi-technical winter route — on the 6288-foot Mt Washington. The idea was to summit this notorious mountain. While the weather was being cooperative, which is seldom on this peak that deservedly boasts having the […]

Mt Pemigewasset Snowshoe

Another group from Massachusetts reached out looking to do some mountain snowshoeing with us — lucky beneficiaries of the great timing of getting some recent cover like our last party did. On lead for this trip up the 2557′ Mt Pemigewasset located at the southern end of Franconia Notch was Redline Guide Ryan Mcguire. Ryan led the group of four up the mostly empty Mt Pemigewasset […]

Snowshoeing a Wintery Mix

They knew that the forecast wasn’t calling for ideal conditions for their half-day afternoon snowshoe hike, but they were resigned to love it no matter what. With a great attitude like that one can’t go wrong, right? And that describes the general attitude of the extended family referred to us by Bretton Woods for a mountain snowshoeing adventure. Bring it, they exclaimed, ice rain, rain rain, […]
