Guide Seminar March 7-8
Interested in becoming a Mountain Club Winter Guide? This guide seminar will let you do that! You must have WFA or higher to attend. We will have 2 2-hour training sessions before the trip itself, then go on a trip for some experiential learning and honing of skills, and have a 1 hour debrief the week after the trip. (You'll also be having this much fun in the blowing snow on top of Wright in the 'Daks, but it will be 20 degrees colder.) Sign up Here .

You can get your copy of the celebrated MMC calendar outside of Proctor this Wednesday at lunch. Of course, you can also get one at Board Meeting.
