We are a select group of hardy hikers and snowshoers who are passionate about mountains and the alpine. If you love the freedom of backcountry hiking, scrambling, and snowshoeing, and you work well within a team setting in the service of safely summiting pristine snow capped peaks, this group is for you!
Pictures are worth a thousand words: to get a better feel for our group, click on "Photos" at the above left and go through our trip albums.
We have had a wonderful spring of alpine snowshoes and fantastic North Shore off-trail jaunts. Our snow sorties, be they day trips or overnighters, will continue well into June and high into the alpine. Scrambles and backpacks to some of our most pristine peaks will start in June and run on into October.
As a small group adventure outfit, our numbers typically range from 3 to 8. So everyone on our outings usually gets to play an integral part, and contributes meaningfully to our success.
An increasing number of alpine recreationists see continuous learning as an essential part of breaking down people’s assumptions as well as for creating best practices among participants. Our group definitely exemplifies that ethos.
There will be a fair number of weekday adventures as well. If the sun is out and the sky is clear, I shall be inclined to take the day off! ;-)
What if you don't have a lot of alpine and snow trip experience? Well, if you appreciate and relish the discipline and give & take of teamwork; you value quality over quantity; and you prefer smaller groups to our massive local hike trains; as well, you are generally calm, methodical, positive, adventurous, young-minded; and lastly, you are fit with a high stamina, a good cardio base, and possess a superb work ethic; then, by all means, come join us!
