Women Only Mountaineering Skills Course

In the 2018-2019 summer season, we introduced our all-women Mountaineering Skills Courses, and the response was awesome. Having a group of only women creates a new dynamic within the course, and we were stoked to hear how much each person enjoyed and learned from the experience. For a few, this was the first step towards an ascent of Mt Aspiring!

Check out a full recap from Jackie Steiner, who was on the February 2019 course, in her blog Spend More Time Outside. In addition to a day by day breakdown, packing list, and takeaways, she sums up her week by saying, "I found the course to be absolutely AMAZING! It stretched me mentally, emotionally and physically and I learned so so so much. I couldn’t have asked for a better trip guide and group of girls to spend 7 days with as we were all stretched and supported each other."
