Hiking Safely, Redefined

In the Year 2020: Living with a “New Normal” There used to be a pretty well defined set of risks hikers and other outdoorsy people would take in the pursuit of their passion. This would include uncertain mountain weather and the problems it can cause, the potential for various physical injuries, and the typical hazards present on trail and while crossing waterways. And more. And we […]

Our Re-Opening Plan

Following our closure, we intend to gradually re-open Redline Guiding adhering conservatively to the general guidelines defined by the New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu’s “Stay at Home 2.0” phased re-opening approach, provided it is fact-, data-, and science-driven only. We will not be driven by politics or emotion. We also plan to consider and adhere to the various applicable plans offered by the CDC (Center for […]

Third Annual Trails Day

We’re Doing It Again — Giving Back to the Trails! We are being optimistic, we are making plans, though bear in mind we decided on a much later date this year for our Third Annual Trails Day. We are hoping that by then, we will all gleefully work together, side-by-side on a White Mountains’ trail. So, without further ado, we hope you will join us yet […]

Virtual Courses Are Real

We mentioned that we started offering virtual courses, but we really didn’t have the infrastructure, so to speak. Not at the time, anyway — it was all so new. We had no official pricing at the time, a massively overblown booking form to use for a rather simple and straightforward registration, and we didn’t even have a page to put any of it on. That has […]

N.H. Bear Bell Project

The past few years have seen a sharp increase in the number of visitors to the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF). Inasmuch the number of black bear-related incidents has likewise skyrocketed, but at an even sharper rate. So much so, it’s concerning. “It’s just a matter of time before someone gets killed,” said one United States Forest Service (USFS) Ranger we spoke with. Due to the […]

Some Courses Now Online

It has been said that necessity is the mother of invention. It’s the truth. A necessity for us — for the greater good — is that we suspended our normal operations for an unspecified period of time. Our “invention,” so to speak, is that we are trying new things, because another necessity is making a living. Specifically we are dabbling in the dark arts of video […]

Riding Out Coronavirus

Please take note of the following: Operational Status Being a non-critical business we are suspending almost all operations (see below) until… well, until it’s safe to resume them normally without putting anyone in jeopardy: our guides, our guests, and anyone who could become involved with us to include other hikers, merchants, SAR, anyone. If you have a booking and require a reschedule with us please know […]

Prepare and Succeed

When beginning a day where we teach Winter and Mountaineering Skills, we tell our students that “real or imagined, we’re planning and preparing to ascend Mt Washington via the Lion Head Trail’s ‘Winter Route’ the very next day” explaining this is the premise of the course and we will in the process prepare them for that very task. Everything learned, of course, is useful on any […]

Three Days in NH

Our guest’s family had purchased gift certificates from us over the holidays because they knew he wanted to do some things with us, and that all came to be this week. First it began with some Winter and Mountaineering Skills classes taught by Redline Guide Ken Hodges. Next up was an attempt of Mount Washington led by Redline Guide Ryan Mcguire, but as is so often […]

Dealing with Coronavirus

Here at Redline Guiding we strive to post only positive content, but in this current situation, positivity is something we will have to reach for, and it may be challenging at times. The very first thing we would like to say is that we offer our hopes and prayers to everyone, and we mean that globally. Of course, we, like you, are affected on a very […]

A Presidential Attempt

The plan was to complete a Classic Presidential Traverse — Madison to Pierce — but what ended up happening was an attempt at said traverse. An attempt that yielded Mounts Madison and Adams, which is no small feat in its own right. As is often the case with those taller 4000-footers, the weather proved too formidable a foe. In this case it was the wind. We […]
