Washington is one of the most coveted winter mountaineering objectives for aspiring mountaineers with greater objectives in the Alaska and Himalaya Ranges. Known for its extreme cold and winds, Mt. Washington offers both an incredible challenge and the opportunity for climbers with objectives such as Denali in Alaska and other Seven Summits peaks the chance to hone their skills in a harsh winter environment. Until now, winter climbing of Mt. Washington has been part of Synnott Mountain Guides Intro to Mountaineering course, a 3 day winter climbing program for beginning mountaineers.
The Mt. Washington One Day Winter Ascent climbing course is ideal for fit climbers with previous crampon and ice axe skills. Climbing Mt.
