Interested in picking up the skills necessary to run your own expedition? Have some experience but interested in getting more into mountaineering and extended length trips in winter conditions? Come join our expedition seminars taking place right here in the Wasatch Mountains...
Willie Benegas is offering 2- or 3-day weekend alpine training programs in his home, the Wasatch mountains of Utah: ski mountaineering, alpine climbing and ice climbing, during a tailored trip to meet YOUR goals to improve as an independent mountaineer.
Home in on all the skills required that you are either missing or need to revise, to enjoy the winter mountains independently – our aim is to get you out in the mountains unguided in the future: trip planning, weather, avalanche concerns and routes, plan B’s, safety plans, camp locations, group dynamics and plenty more!
Our expedition seminars will be instructed by IFMGA guide Willie Benegas, and will take place on weekends from the end of January to end of March. Willie needs no introduction but boasts significant expedition experience on Himalayan Peaks, Denali, Aconcagua, and can assist you with logistics and planning necessary to have a successful expedition.
Essentials: Approach gear (ski or snowshoes), boots, avalanche beacon, probe, shovel.
