Low Impact Skills

If you’ve taken any of our classes recently, you may be familiar with our Low Impact Recreation skills videos and the Low Impact Recreation Travel badge. At The Mountaineers, we believe responsibly exploring the outdoors is an essential piece of the human experience. Our Low Impact Recreation Skills are designed to be used in tandem with other technical skills you learn along the way, like tying knots or using an ice ax for self-arrest.

If you head out on the trails this weekend, show us your smartest Low Impact Travel Skills and use the hashtag #mountieslowimpact on social media! Whether you keep your group size to a minimum, camp on a durable surface, or traipse through mud and snow in order to avoid widening the trails, let others know you’re actively working to protect the wilderness for future generations.
