An American Ascent
Wednesday

On April 22nd at 7 PM in Dana Auditorium, MMC with the wonderful sponsorship of organizations like Women of Color, The Fireside, and Brooker, will be bringing the film An American Ascent to campus!  The film chronicles the action filled journey of the first fully African American expedition team up to Mt. Denali, the tallest peak in North America. The film also brings together the history of American mountaineering with the Civil Rights Movement and access to the outdoors for all. It is a film you will not want to miss. Also, watch around campus for posters detailing related events this week.
Here is the trailer if you want to check it out!

Spruce Lake Beginner Adventure with Andrew and Sophie
 Have you ever wanted to go on a Mountain Club Overnight but been too intimidated by the worn in boots and highly stickered nalgenes? This Saturday-Sunday trip is for you. We'll be going out to the gorgeous Adirondack Lakes and making a short, mellow route to some beautiful views and rustic lean-to structures. Enjoy and learn how to cook gourmet backpacking delicacies. Appreciate some nature with new friends. Experience completely unnecessary. If you don't know anything about backpacking we want to teach you, if you do we want to learn from you. Sign up here.

There will be snacks and hot chocolate and much more fun to be had! Wright Park is a beautiful place and what better way to enjoy it than with some manual labor. Sign up here.

Snake Mountain Afternoon Hike

Do you want to take advantage of the great weather and the fact that spring has finally arrived without getting up at 4 in the morning? This trip is for you! We will wait until the sun is up and the air is warm and take a nice hike to scenic Snake Mountain. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the beautiful Vermont natural world and get a little off campus! Sign up here.
