Winter Courses

Mt. Washington Ascents: Sponsored by Burgeon Outdoor

Mt. Washington is without a doubt the most sought after and recognized peak in New Hampshire. Climbing Mt. Washington with MMG is a truly awesome experience you will remember. With arctic temperatures, record setting winds, frequent whiteouts, and deep snowpack, this mountain provides a challenge for everyone.

You and your guide will meet early to check essential gear. As you ascend you will hone your winter travel techniques.  Arriving above tree-line will put your skills into practice as you make your way to the top. On a clear day the summit treats you to a 360-degree view of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Canada. And the day isn’t over; the descent can sometimes be more challenging then the ascent.

Climbing Daily for individuals and groups (subject to availability):
