The longevity of The Mountaineers relies on effective engagement and instruction of its students. Not only are they the future generation of climbers, kayakers, hikers, campers, and more -- they are also our future instructors and leaders of our branches. Course and field trip leaders are in the strongest position to impact the legacy of our organization.
