Dominate Mount Abe with Emma and Ryan before your Thursday classmates even hit their snooze buttons!!!
Hop up out of bed and warm yourself up with a hike up Mt. Abe! We will leave ADK at 4:15 am for a 7:23 sunrise and be back in time for 10:00 classes. Bring lots of warm layers (it's usually pretty windy up there), hat, gloves, boots, microspikes (possibly snowshoes), headlamp, and a water bottle. We will provide some snackaroos. Should be lots of fun! Expect ~6 miles of medium-strenuous winter hiking! Sign up on ideologic HERE. If this link does not work please email Emma at eerwin@middlebury.edu
Fireside this Friday!!! MMMMM
Do you like sharing stories about the mountains? Do you enjoy delicious food? Come on down to Brooker for a beautiful banquet of Potato Leek soup, homemade bread, quinoa salad, and a mystery dessert! We promise it will taste better than Mountain House "scrambled eggs." 
There are no trips going out this weekend... isn't that SAD?!? 
It appears as if there are no trips planned for this weekend, even though it is supposed to be beautiful! So if you are a guide, or you know a guide, peer pressure them into leading something soon!! We won't have this beautiful winter forever...
