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
