Regime Change
We are so excited and honored to be taking over as the new Mountain Club Presidents. Caroline is in Costa Rica for J Term exploring the mountains, flora, and fauna, but she'll be back in February excited and ready for MMC excellence! Our overarching goal, as always, is to give as many people the opportunity to have fun outside, in as many different ways as possible. Some of our smaller goals include amending and editing the MMC constitution, leading trips dedicated to wellness and mindfulness, and expanding guide training. If you have input on any of these things come to a meeting or email us at mmc@middlebury.edu.

Huge Katahdin Spring Break Ski Trip with Caroline and Parker 
Sign on for the grandest MMC trip of the year. We'll make the 9 day ski around Katahdin, Maine's greatest mountain, and see just how remote and wild New England can be. Most nights we will be tenting, but three will be in cabins with wood stoves. Expect long days (up to 13 miles) and deep untracked snow. Participants should be experienced Nordic skiers, with either race experience or backcountry touring experience. A required training trip will happen one weekend in February. There is a $100 deposit to sign up which will be refunded after the trip. Email MOP@middlebury.edu if you need help covering this cost. Admission by application. Please sign up by midnight Wednesday the 13th. Apply here.
