As spring comes in at lower elevations, winter remains up high on Mt. Rainier. Lead guide Nickel Wood and our Denali Prep Seminar are having perfect weather to train for Denali. By that of course we mean cold temps, a bit of wind and of course great Pacific Northwest snow!
As the weather moves through, the team is getting a great chance to practice expedition skills in conditions like what they’ll experience in the greater ranges. They’re focusing on sled hauling, camp construction and maintenance as well as crevasse rescue and rope skills. Exactly the type of training you want before heading to Denali or any high altitude peak!
