How do you keep students safe in the snow and cold?

Safety is our #1 concern.  We have been keeping students safe in the cold and snow for over 20 years!  We provide all of our students with top of the line gear and clothing that is designed to keep them safe, dry and warm for the current season, including a snowy winter. We teach all of our students about backcountry safety and appropriate layering for all conditions. When the temperatures get extremely cold or wet, we have access to shelters as well as heated wall-tents that come equipped with wood-burning stoves. Each of our Teams carry satellite phones as well as cell phones so that they are able to reach out for help in the event of an emergency. A Director and an on-call support system is always in place to assist groups out on the trail as needed.  Please see our blog post on how we thrive in the winter months.
