We’re Five Now

We officially opened our doors on October 17th, 2016. This means we are now five years and one day old — since we didn’t get to this post yesterday. We’re working on becoming six. If we were a human child we would be able to hold a decent and entertaining conversation with an adult right about now, and we’d be headed off to kindergarten, ready to […]

Guide Spotlight: Jeffrey Shutak

A quick search will reveal a couple of these “Guide Spotlight” posts. And clearly it is time for another. This time we wanted you to get to know Redline Guide Jeffrey Shutak a little better. We welcomed Jeffrey to the team on August 15th, 2017, so he’s been contracting with us for a while — almost since the beginning. In this post we are asking Jeffrey […]

Alpine Guide Course

Over the past nine days Redline Guide Ryan McGuire took a hiatus from guiding in Washington State to continue his professional development and move one step closer to being a card-carrying, fully certified Alpine Guide through the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA). The Rocky Mountains in Colorado were a perfect venue for Ryan’s training. Ryan reports that was a heavy focus on short-roping and short-pitching on […]

Train Station in the Sky

One of the nice things about the 6288′ Mt Washington, despite its crazy weather, is the very infrastructure we love to hate. Cursing right now are the die-hard hikers that, for good reason, feel that planes, trains, and automobiles have no place on the summit of one of their beloved mountains. We won’t argue the point, but we will also play devil’s advocate for a moment. […]

Guide Spotlight: Ryan McGuire

Busy guiding on Mt Baker (and other mountains in that region like Rainier) this summer Redline Guide Ryan McGuire is pretty busy. But we were able to catch up to him and asked the same questions we asked Arlette last month. Here’s what Ryan had to say: What do you like most about the mountains? I love the alpine environment. Getting above the trees where you […]

Updated Covid-19 Policy

It’s not over until it’s over for everyone, worldwide, this is fact, but tell that to the people in our little corner of the world. We now see very few masks being worn anywhere. There are some holdouts, of course, but by the day they crumble and cave. Meanwhile, there are still daily infection rates hovering somewhere above zero in New Hampshire — the number’s been […]

Guide Spotlight: Arlette Laan

As such, we like to spend some time sharing information about them so that you, dear reader, will appreciate them as much as we do. In this entry we will cast our guide spotlight on Redline Guide Arlette Laan — who’s currently hiking the massive 4700-mile North Country […]

Trails Day Success, #4

We just finished our Fourth Annual Trails Day and it was again a huge success. This year, under the leadership of the US Forest Service, Saco District, we preformed what was probably our heaviest workout as volunteers. Organizers and supporters for this event, besides us and the USFS, were the NH Trail Workers Group, Rockhopper Races, and Tuckerman Brewing. Redline Guides present were Mike Cherim, Ken […]

Yoga & Meditation Sunrise

Here’s an idea we came up with for Memorial Day weekend: Individuals, couples, or families can head up to the Mt Washington Valley on Saturday May 29th, taking their time, enjoying the ride. Once they arrive they can check in to one of the numerous hotels in the area (call us for a recommendation). The rest of the afternoon is spent shopping, checking out some local […]

We’re pleased to announce we have taken on yet another guide. Redline Guide Samantha Fairfield is new to guiding as a career but has long maintained a strong desire to guide and to do so with Redline Guiding in particular. Her applying twice, the second time with a wilderness first responder (WFR) certifications added to her credentials, was a sure testament to her ambition and enthusiasm. […]
