Get pumped for Winter School 2009! Over IAP, you'll learn how to enjoy the snow; how to use crampons, snowshoes, ice axes, skis, sleds, and hockeys skates; how to build snow shelters and fires. Then on weekends we'll go up to the White Mountains in New Hampshire to practice your skills on hiking, skiing, and camping trips. Relax by the fire in our nice cozy cabin and meet others who are excited about Winter and the Outdoors. Read more info about logistics, gear to buy, and other stuff here: http://web.mit.edu/mitoc/www/oldcontent/winter/
A few brave MITOC'ers hiked Mt Marcy on Nov 10th. Mt Marcy is in the Northern Adirondacks, and at 5,300ft is the highest point New York. This shows that even though it might be sunny and warm in Boston, you can always find snow this time of year in the Mountains! Participate in Winter School 2009!
Thanks for everyone who came on Fall Circus! There are some awesome pictures from some of the trips on the MITOC Gallery site: http://mitoc.mit.edu/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=129394

It's about time for the 3rd annual Presidential Range Relay Race! (PRRR) It's a tough, 3X3 relay race across the Presidential Range of New Hampshire from Crawford Notch to Appalachia Trailhead. It's organized by Tufts. The organizer of the MITOC group is Matthew Gilbertson (firstname.lastname@example.org. A MITOC team won the race two years ago (read about it here), and we hope to reclaim our title this year. Email Matthew if you're interested.
The Intervale Keyholder trip is scheduled for Oct 17-19. If you want to be able to use the Intervale Cabin, join us for a fun weekend. On Saturday we'll do some work around the cabin and learn how to take care of it. On Sunday we'll go on some hiking and climbing trips. There might even be some skiing by then! More information will be sent to the email@example.com list soon.
We hope you all had an awesome summer! If you want to check out what some MITOC have been up to this summer, check out our trip gallery: http://mitoc.mit.edu/gallery/main.php Some of the awesome trips include climbing in Moab, mountaineering on Rainier, working for the Forest Service in the Sierra Nevada, whitewater rafting in New Hampshire, and bicycling from Alaska to Wyoming.
