Many who’ve done winter scrambling will tell you it is the best time to be out there. You don’t have to be an advanced level mountaineer to enjoy it, and no, the weather isn’t horrendous the whole winter long. The Everett branch will offer a number of winter scrambles in the upcoming months. Discover the wonder of winter in the mountains. From the microcosm to the vistas, see ice crystals that are a wonder and see vast whiteness with trees totally white.

Once a year we host a Winter Scrambling Orientation. We’re sure you’ll see some friendly, familiar faces, and before the evening’s done, we’ll clue you in on all you’ll need to know to be ready to reach a few summits in the mountains this winter. We’ll talk about the special requirements of winter trips, with a focus on snowshoes, the primary means of getting around on winter scrambles.

Any Alpine Scrambling or Basic Climbing graduate is eligible to take part. This one-night seminar is not a requirement to go on winter scrambles, but it is certainly helpful.

Experienced winter scramblers: You’re also invited to attend so you can share your expertise with the newcomers. Bring your snowshoes and any of your favorite gear to show off.
