A tentative schedule of 2019 trips is below. The final schedule will be released in late-January.
If you are struggling to see the calendar in its entirety, open it in a new window.
To apply for a trip, submit an application.
This schedule is updated every 5 minutes. It’s almost guaranteed to reflect my current thinking.
How will this schedule change?
Last updated December 13.
Locations. Rocky Mountain National Park is definite. The High Sierra trips will hopefully be in Yosemite National Park, to which I have submitted a commercial use application; as a backup, the trips will be in Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park, where my permit is already approved. Next week I will be submitting an application to Monongahela National Forest to operate trips around Spruce Knob and Seneca Creek. In Alaska I’m debating between the eastern Alaska Range and the Brooks Range.
Trip types and intensities. After the open application period, I will have a better sense for demand. For example, how many applicants do I have for 5-day Moderate trips in the High Sierra? I will adjust the schedule to accommodate as many applicants as possible, by deciding trip intensities and possibly swapping trip types.
Guides. The assignments are mostly correct.
Women-only sessions. Several of the Colorado trips will be eligible to women only, and will be led by two female guides. More details TBA.
