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 […]

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 […]

Now Offering Mt Everest

When we talk about the Hillary Step, we mean THE Hillary Step! A natural progression might look something like this: 1. Conquer Mt Willard, cross the street to 2. Bag Mt Washington, then travel to the other side of the planet to 3. Grab the 29,032′ Mt Everest next. That’s our thinking anyway. It’s more than just thinking, actually, as we already made it up there […]

Two With Snow

From afar, when there’s snow, two New Hampshire mountain ranges stand out. Mt Washington and the Presidential Range and the famed Franconia Ridge. Where shades of frozen gray and green bearing slashes and scars dominate the winteresque landscape, these two ridges remain bright and white, glinting in the sun. Above it all — our precious alpine areas, a resource to be protected. Over the past few […]

Same Day Rock and Ice

New Hampshire offers a large number of cool things to do at any given time of year. Let’s face it, the state is an outdoor-lover’s paradise. And during a brief period, most notably in the spring, this large number increases as the demarcation line between the seasons gets a little fuzzy. The lingering winter activities vie for our attention as much as the spring things do. […]

Now We Rock

Last year we added a Rock Climbing Intro course to our selection of Educational offerings. We did this with the idea of offering full-on Rock Climbing Adventures the following year. And that is where we’re at right now! Here it is, 2022, one year later, and we’re wicked psyched to finally complete our current lineup of Adventure options with the addition of this latest high-revving offering. […]

Clinging Onto Winter

We aren’t ones to give up on a season easily. Especially winter in New Hampshire. What the heck happened? Nature’s been holding out. So we won’t give up quite yet, but we’d encourage you all to get after it, too, while you can. Thanks to some snow, we got a chance to enjoy another week of Nordic and alpine skiing and there’s still some ice to […]

Weekend in Motion

While some arms did swing ice tools under the guidance of Redline Guide Pat Ferland this past weekend, it was the legs of hikers that created the most warmth. First at bat was Redline Guide Mike Maciel as he showed one gentleman his beloved Franconia Ridge. Next up was Redline Guide Phoebe Seltzer showing one many-time returning guest a delightful hike to Mt Parker during a […]

12 Spring Water Crossing Tips

It’s getting to be that time of year: Spring, a whole new season of hazards to contend with. A time of year when staying dry is a real challenge thanks to all the various forms of water out there. And crossings… oh, my. That ice cold and sometimes turbid spring snow melt rushing toward the sea — standing between us and our next 4000-footer or 52 […]
