Course quick description: Break through the mountaineer’s barrier of entry and transform yourself from outdoorsy to knowledgeable backcountry traveler.

Mountaineering: Beginner is the first step in your personal transformation from hiker and backpacker to technical mountaineer and explorer of Washington’s volcanoes. In our eight-hour course, learn skills like meal preparation, map and compass navigation, how to pack a pack, and what to bring. After this course you can begin to apply the educational skills to your overnight adventures. Then you will be eligible to register for Mountaineering: Intermediate where we will be taking you up to Mount Baker for a three day educational course and summit attempt!
