  • PREREQUISITES

    Mountaineering is a marathon not a sprint. There is typically a several mile hike into a campsite while wearing a 20-30 pound backpack. This hike will at some points be on uneven terrain and at other times on an established trail. You will potentially be exposed to cold water, snow, high air temps, poisionous plants and animals, and adverse weather conditions.

     

    Each registrant for Intro to Snowshoeing must have completed our Level 2, Intro to Mountaineering Course and our Level 3, Intro to Snowshoeing Course.

     

    We have taken clients as young as 12 and as old as 72 snow camping. Our main stipulation is you must fit within the size requirements for a harness (typically under a size 40 waist and under 350 pounds). Beyond that you should possess a general fitness level and enjoy hiking in the outdoors. If you have a specific question about the sport please contact us.
