Everything you need to start hiking the White Mountains this winter
Watch our webinar:
Laurie Watt (@laurie_wattclimbs) of Mooney Mountain is an experienced hiker, climber, skier, and mountain guide. She holds American Mountain Guide Association certifications as both a single pitch instructor and apprentice alpine guide.
This course was designed to be appropriate for winter hiking novices. If you love the outdoors and want to experience the mountains during our harsh New England winters, this event is for you. While some general hiking experience and knowledge is helpful, it is not necessary.
Laurie Watt Biography:
Laurie’s passion is to provide opportunities for beginner climbers, especially all women groups, to try climbing. “I love watching women discover that they are much more capable and strong than they know through climbing”. Laurie guides beginner rock and ice climbing, mountaineering, winter hiking and camping as well as routes on the glaciers of Mt. Baker in the Pacific Northwest.
