Overview

Mountain Leadership School is AMC's most comprehensive outdoor leadership development program. Individuals take advantage of MLS to learn to safely and confidently enjoy their wilderness experience with minimal impact on the backcountry. The course is applicable to those who hike solo, with friends or intend to lead groups. Originally conceived to teach personal outdoor leadership in the face of recurring demands for mountain rescue services placed on the National Forestry Service, MLS is now in its 62nd year! Designed for MLS graduates and experienced outdoor leaders, the Advanced Skills format focuses on the skills not covered in traditional MLS. This five day, White Mountain-based backpacking program launches into the backcountry on day one. The Advanced Skills program includes: • Trip planning for more complex trips • Above treeline navigation and travel • Conflict resolution • Critical decision-making This program format provides varying overnight accommodations-including established campsites, primitive campsites, and an AMC High Mountain Hut-which requires the students to remain flexible and on their toes. Students enrolled in this program will be expected to read additional materials and prepare both lesson plans and proposed trip plans in advance of the start date. This challenging and fun program accepts a limited number of students each year and requires advanced approval to enroll.
