Guide Training-Winter Camping & Ice Climbing

Attention guides and winter enthusiasts!  It’s time to get out there and get some practice in… climb ice, cook in the snow, and sleep in it, too.  Proper gear and the right company make winter camping an experience that you’ll want to come back to every year.  Let’s do this right and learn the techniques involved to stay safe and warm out there in the cold.  If you are looking for an intro experience to back country wilderness camping and ice climbing, this course is for you!
