Join our staff in a 4-day workshop in winter mountaineering and ice climbing. Participants will learn how to set up winter camps, travel and navigate in snow, use of snowshoes, crampons, and ice axes, winter survival skills, and above tree line peak ascents. Our goal is to teach participants the skills needed to safely enjoy the mountains in the winter.
