THIS WILL BE A CHALLENGING COURSE DUE TO WEATHER AND SEASON. Students should be prepared to spend portions of the day in conditions that may include significant snow or rain, wind, and/or freezing temperatures. Our course shelter is heated by two large fireplaces and we will have ample hot liquids at the ready, but accommodations are more akin to a backcountry cabin or shelter than a frontcountry classroom. Appropriate footwear, under and outerwear will be necessary as will the knowledge and experience, or adventurous desire to learn, of how to be active in a challenging winter environment.
