Overview

Winter hiking is kicked up a notch with this trip to High Peaks Wilderness area! Not for beginners - vetting by leader for your experience under snow/ice conditions is a requirement. Must be comfortable with using snowshoes, crampons and other traction devices. Day hikes will start from conveniently-located lodging. Leader will cater to the range of level-4 hikers, from those who want a challenging but compassionate winter High Peaks experience, to those desirous of more strenuous and longer-mileage adventures. Evening group dining is encouraged. Group size limited to 15.
