Past participants say...

•"The highlight of this program was learning about snowshoeing in the White Mountains with fantastic guides! I can't say enough good things about our guide. She was supportive, fun, knowledgeable, helpful, right there to solve a problem, and positive! " Participant, January 2014 •"The highlight of this program was being comfortable in extreme (for me) cold and learning how to use gear properly for function and comfort." Participant, January 2014
