Trip Itinerary and Details

Important Notice: Day 1 is the day you should plan to arrive at the meeting point for the trip. This may require departing your hometown one or more days in advance and traveling on an overnight flight.

  • Day 1 - Arrive and enjoy a taste of small-town New England.

    Arrive at your leisure at the Comfort Inn and Suites in the New England town of Lincoln, New Hampshire. Dinner tonight is on your own; the town center is close by and there are many local restaurants in Lincoln. Eat and rest well in preparation for tomorrow's climbing instructions.

  • Day 2 - Ascend Welsh and Dickey peak, perfect for learning winter climbing skills.

    The hotel serves a continental breakfast, or you can enjoy and early breakfast at a restaurant in town. Trip members will gather in the Comfort Inn and Suites lobby at 7:30 a.m. for introductions, a trip orientation and gear check. Special consideration is given to clothing, equipment and food selection. We then caravan to Mt. Welch and Mt. Dickey for a day of winter climbing skills, including snow and ice travel, crampon techniques, ice axe use, self-arrest, and navigation. Our climb on Mt. Welch and Mt. Dickey is a 4-1/2 mile mountain climb on rugged terrain that is perfect for your introduction to winter climbing techniques. After a day of learning we will return to our hotel for hot showers. Dinner is on your own.

    Note: Days 2 & 3, bring your own snacks and lunches to be carried in your backpack. Granola bars, drink mixes, trail mix, bagels, hard cheeses, salami, jerky, apples, etc. are good choices.

  • Day 3 - We make our summit attempt of Mt. Washington!

    We meet in the hotel lobby at 5:00 a.m. stopping for a quick breakfast before we caravan to Mt. Washington. Our ascent is broken down into three sections. Our first objective is hiking through the forest along the Ammonoosuc Stream to beautiful Gem Pool. The trail quickly steepens for 1,500' to the exposed Lake of the Clouds Hut at 5,100', which is our second rewarding objective. At this point we are likely to begin experiencing extreme and challenging weather conditions. We assess current weather, climbing conditions, how the group is feeling, and if conditions are favorable, make a decision for a continued ascent. From the Lake of the Clouds it is another 1.5 miles and 1,100' of elevation gain along the Crawford Path to the summit. Once we reach the summit cone, expect to be greatly rewarded. However, be prepared to experience the notorious cold and extreme weather Mt. Washington is known for! We descend and plan to return to Lincoln around 6:30 p.m. If you wish to extend your stay in Lincoln, please book a hotel for this evening. If you are flying out tonight, please leave plenty of time to reach the airport and note there could be winter driving conditions. All meals on your own.

    Note: The climb from Lake of the Clouds to the summit typically takes 3-4 hours. Above tree line, travel in winter is extreme. Expect high winds, arctic temperatures and ample opportunity to test your newfound skills and willpower. As we ascend your guides will continue to offer coaching and instruction on climbing efficiently and safely.

Note on Itinerary

Although we do our very best to adhere to the schedule above, the itinerary is subject to change for numerous reasons beyond our control. Expect very cold temperatures, fog, frequent cloud cover and high winds. Weather may turn us away from our objective at any time, and that the final call is left to our guides and must be adhered to by all group members.

Important Information about Air Travel

Contact REI Adventures prior to purchasing your airline tickets to confirm that the trip has the minimum number of participants required to operate.

Price Includes

Professional instruction and guiding; two nights hotel lodging based on double occupancy, group climbing equipment, permits.

Not Included

Transportation to the group meeting point, transportation to trailheads (20-38 miles each way per day), insurance of any kind, meals and beverages; optional night's lodging pre-or post-trip, optional guide gratuities, items of a personal nature.

Closest Airport(s)

Manchester, NH: Manchester Airport (MHT), 65 miles

There is no reliable transfer service from any airport to our meeting place. Anticipate renting a car if flying in for this weekend getaway.

Weather

The average mid-winter temperature on the summit is about 5°F. Typically a daily high is in the low teens and an overnight low a few degrees below zero. Mid-winter sees daily average winds of between 45 and 50 miles per hour. Each winter month typically yields between 40 and 55 inches of new snowfall. The upper slopes of the mountain are in the fog about 60% of the time. Fog limits visibility, often to 50 to 100 feet; in conjunction with falling and blowing snow, fog can lead to "white out" conditions, in which visibility is limited to only a few feet. Especially in December and January, the hours of daylight are limited.

Qualifications

This trip is rated Vigorous (4) as climbing the peak involves carrying a backpack (10-20 lbs.) over very steep, snowy/icy/rocky terrain in potentially very challenging weather conditions for many hours continuously. The climbing portions of the trip involve travel on very steep terrain and at altitude, which is physically demanding. To maximize your enjoyment of the trip and to avoid sore muscles, we suggest that you engage in a regular exercise regimen beginning at least three months prior to your departure. Most important to your overall enjoyment is your overall fitness level.

Weather

You may experience very cold temperatures, fog, frequent cloud cover and high winds. Climbers should come prepared with every piece of equipment indicated on the gear list below and should maintain an awareness that the environmental factors are part of the challenge of the climb. Climbers should also maintain the understanding that weather may turn us away from our objective at any time, and that the final call is left to our instructors and must be adhered to by all group members. 

Single Travelers

If you are traveling alone and specifically request single accommodations, you will be asked to pay the single supplement fee. There is no single supplement fee for those willing to share accommodations, and we will assign you a roommate of the same gender if possible. Please be advised that there are a limited number of single accommodations available.

General Information

This trip is subject to the booking information set forth in the current REI Adventures Weekend Reservation Information. Please read this information carefully and call us if you have any questions. A full gear list and detailed pre-trip information is sent upon sign-up. We highly recommend the purchase of travel insurance through REI Adventures. If coverage is purchased at the time of your initial reservation, the 'Pre-existing Conditions Exclusion' is waived (certain exclusions apply).

We look forward to having you join us for the trip of a lifetime! Why wait? Space is limited, reserve your adventure today.

Mount Washington Winter Climb Gear List

Having the proper gear is vital to your comfort and overall enjoyment of the seminar. Attached is a gear list that has been specifically designed for this trip.  We often get asked if all items appearing on the list on the following page are really required. Our guides assert that climbers must arrive prepared as indicated, but please keep in mind that not all gear will be required for all departures. The weather and terrain conditions on Mt. Washington at the time of your arrival will dictate what clothing and equipment you will be required to carry with you during the day and what (if anything) can be left behind. If you do not already own all of the necessary gear and are not certain if you will participate in mountaineering trips on a regular basis, please consider renting.

Gear Checklist

Provided Gear
  • Ice Axe
  • Crampons
  • Climbing boots: Double plastic or leather waterproof climbing boots
Luggage
  • Backpack - internal frame (45-50 liters)
Outerwear
  • Down or synthetic fill parka rated to 0 degrees Fahrenheit or lower (this is in addition to the waterproof shell jacket and other required upper-body layers). A parka with this degree of cold protection is required as conditions on the mountain can be extreme and the risk of hypothermia and freezing is high without adequate protection.
  • Waterproof, breathable shell jacket with attached hood (ponchos not acceptable)
  • Waterproof, breathable shell pants with side zippers allowing for easy on/off over boots
Clothing
  • Heavy/expedition weight fleece jacket or soft shell (a warmth piece, worn under your waterproof layer)
  • Midweight wool or fleece jacket/sweater
  • Midweight, thermal underwear top and bottom, synthetic or wool (no cotton)
  • WSoft shell pants (early/late season)
  • Synthetic T-shirts
  • Synthetic long-sleeve shirt
  • Hiking socks and liner socks – 2 pairs of each
  • Bring a few lightweight, easily washable items for travel and use when not climbing
Clothing Accessories
  • Neck gaiter & face mask or balaclava or all 3
  • Ski goggles
  • Gaiters, mid-calf length or higher (must be oversized for double boots, recommend the next size up.)
  • Expedition gloves with liners
  • Expedition mittens with liners
  • Thin glove liners
  • Sun hat
  • Wool or fleece hat
  • Bandana for sun protection

Travel Accessories
  • Spare cash for meals
  • Lunch items for each day (easily packable, non-perishable, energy bars and real foods)

Optional Field Gear

  • Altimeter

Things to Consider

  • We recommend thin liner socks under your regular, thicker hiking socks. The liner sock should be made of a non-absorbent wicking material, not cotton. Test your sock combination before you go on the trip.
  • COTTON KILLS! Once cotton clothing becomes wet, it will drain your body heat. Bring wool or synthetics such as Capilene, MTS and Thermax. Always test your layers before a trip. Your outer garments should fit easily over your layers without binding or bunching up.
  • To protect your face and neck while climbing you will want to climb with a combination neck gaiter and face mask or with a balaclava. If you are very concerned about wind/cold, you may wish to bring all of these items.

 

 

Feel free to give us a call at (800) 622-2236 should you have any questions regarding the gear list. The staff at our stores and Direct Sales (800-426-4840) will also be happy to help you with gear questions. Or check out www.rei.com/learn.

            Comments about REI Adventures Mount Washington Winter Climb:

            This isn't a very difficult climb by any means, but you should definitely be comfortable hiking for long periods in mountaineering boots with a semi-heavy pack, have a working knowledge of layering (although the guides will cover this extensively) and be willing to push yourself a little bit to get to the summit. If you like hiking and love the winter time you cannot have a bad time on this trip. I cannot recommend it enough and have already decided to return next season to do it again. I learned a lot, had a great time and decided that this is something I aim to do much more of.

            • Why did you choose this trip?:
            • Wanted to get into winter mountaineering and there aren't many options in the northeast
            • What was the highlight of your trip?:
            • The last push from lake of the clouds to the summit in low visibility conditions was a rush. Our guide, Art was absolutely fantastic and that isn't a detail to overlook. A guide can make or break a trip and he had a lot of knowledge that made the whole thing worthwhile.
            • What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
            • Use the packing list as a guide. Use your judgement and don't be afraid to contact REI or the guides because they will be able to give you excellent advice. Bring everything and return things if you don't use them. Better safe than sorry in this aspect.

              Comments about REI Adventures Mount Washington Winter Climb:

              The weather conditions and the condition of the group will make a difference whether you can summit. We had 60 mph sustained winds with higher gusts and wind a chill of -40 degrees. That mountain is no joke. Our guides Art and Rob were always assessing our gear,the weather conditions, energy level and made certain it was safe to continue. They made it possible. I would go with these guys and REI in a heartbeat.

              • Why did you choose this trip?:
              • The challenge of climbing Mt Washington in the winter is a challenge that I wanted the most. The terrain is difficult at times and the high winds and weather can exaggerate the conditions. I was confident that REI would provide the best possible combination of guides and accommodations.
              • What was the highlight of your trip?:
              • Making it to the summit of Mount Washington was no doubt the highlight. Coming out of the alpine zone to the Lake of the clouds hut where the weather got extreme. The guides were awesome. A bluebird sky is always good.
              • What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
              • Bring everything on the gear list. Listen and respect the guides. Get fit before you do this. Especially lower body and cardio.

                Comments about REI Adventures Mount Washington Winter Climb:

                The guides were the best I have ever used. I will never use anyone else in the area. Their patience and persistence were second to none. At no point in the trip was I ever uneasy or hesitant, despite the fact that the conditions were unreal (85 mph wind at -6 degrees Fahrenheit, wind chill -41F) Not all trips experience this kind of weather, but due to it we could not summit. Go into the trip with that in mind- summiting, however, is secondary to experience what Mt. Washington has to offer.
                Ten thousand thank you's for making this possible!

                • Be in good shape, and YES you need all of the gear and large pack that the list recommends. Also, plan to stay the night on the last evening, the rest is worth it.

                  I think this was a great trip for novices and hikers/climbers with no winter experience. The climb itself was a lot easier than I expected. Bottom line: the weather is what makes this mountain difficult. Since we had great weather it wasn't the challenge I was looking for. It is a beautiful mountain going up and down. I think this climb is closer to 3 on the rating scheme. That being said, the guide service was fantastic and REI should never change who they are using. I learned a lot from the guides just talking on our way up the mountain. The guides really made this trip for me.

                          The only slight disappointment I have (and it is very slight) is that we did not experience or learn anything related to use of harness/rope that you could experience in mountaineering. I was hoping that would've been part of the experience, however, we did experience/learn other skills that will be useful in the future such as ice ax techniques as well as proper footwork while travelling on ice with crampons.

                            I am writing this review while at the airport... an unbelievable experience. THE GUIDES WERE AMAZING!!!! For an inexperienced winter climber they gave me an enormous sense of reassurance. REI def has a great contract with these folks!

                            • Why did you choose this trip?:
                            • The perfect adventure. This trip seemed a manageable distance covered @ approx 8.4 miles I believe. Based on the time of the year climbing I preferred not to camp out in sub zero temp's. This day trip was the perfect exposure to the "world's worst weather"
                            • What was the highlight of your trip?:
                            • Hitting the summit on a day when (due to conditions and group size) I had my doubts. The final 1.4 miles above treeline, a fellow climber was utilizing "the hut" for wind protection and said he barely made it twenty minutes into the "crawford path" and had to return. The fact that we toughed it out in near knockdown winds and climbed over an hour was an incredible mental toughness/accomplishment.
                            • What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
                            • Bring everything on the gear list (if you don't already have it) the weather is extremely unpredictable, and varies tremendously. You will know the morning of what you will need for clothing and gear and can pack efficiently up until the parking lot so as to minimize unnecessary layers/ weight. You can always return unused/ purchased gear.

                                Overall the trip was fantastic. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and very attentive to everyone on the trip. They were able to provide great advice about layering, food and other things in addition to teaching us the more technical skills.

                                • I have primarily hiked in the spring, summer and fall and wanted to take a first step into winter hiking/climbing.
                                • What was the highlight of your trip?:
                                • The highlight of my trip was making it to the summit and to see the beautiful view. It was definitely worth the effort! The pictures are great!!
                                • What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
                                • I found the descent more physically challenging than the ascent so anything that you can do to strengthen your quads is highly recommended.
