Outdoor Education Trifecta

That’s what this weekend felt like. Beginning Friday we instructed four pretty diverse wilderness education courses. First up we ran a River Skills Course. Much to our surprise this was much less painful and far more enjoyable than we had envisioned, despite having to traverse shore ice getting to the river. Next up was our very popular Wilderness Navigation Course. This was doable thanks to limited […]

River Crossing Class

We originally had a full class for today’s half-day women’s-only River Crossing Skills course — put on for the NH Women’s Hiking Group (a.k.a. the Purple Army) — but two of the members decided to take our map and compass course instead. That left us with a grand total of two eager students… and that was totally enough to make it a fun and worthwhile day […]

Wild Exploration Adventures

We are creating a series of hiking adventures that will take participants off the beaten track to explore areas of the White Mountain National Forest that few ever visit. We will be bushwhacking, using old trails, following terrain features like slides, navigating by map and compass, and more.

Overnight Alpine Tour

A returning guest and amateur photographer, Linda, made a request to basically be in the alpine zone from sun-up to sundown, to make use of those golden hours shutterbugs love so much, summit Mt Monroe, and summit Mt Washington. And, during it all be informed about the alpine flora she wanted to photograph. Not just a hike, but a nature tour as well. It was suggested […]

Spring is in the Air

Springtime brings us longer days and generally milder weather. It has its challenges, usually in the form of soft snow, postholing, dripping trees, weakened snow bridges, and iffy river crossings — plus it still gets cold at night — but there’s so much to do at this time of year blending winter with the rest of the year. Below are examples of some of the cool, […]

Alpine Touring Ski Intro

Our Nordic and Alpine backcountry ski intro classes aren’t top sellers for us, but they are solid classes and a ton of fun. Today, thanks to lean, crusty snow conditions in the actual backcountry, we took it to Black Mountain Ski Area in Jackson, NH. There Redline Guide Mike Cherim and a single guest, Alex, purchased uphill skinning passes so they could ascend the snow covered […]

Guiding Camel’s Hump in VT

On Friday we brought returning guest, Brian, an accomplished boxer from New York, on a snowmobile to Caps Ridge Trail for a Mt Jefferson summit attempt. Weather and other factors stood in the way of an actual summit, but he got to fight another bout Sunday, this time with Redline Guide Álvaro Marques in his corner. And this time against a new contender: one of Vermont’s […]
