ANDREWS GLACIER CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TREK –  A BEGINNER MOUNTAINEERS CLASSIC

Mountains and Glaciers! Spend the day with a KMAC guide as you complete one of the finest and most visually striking hiking loops in RMNP. We begin at Bear Lake and follow the trail to the top of “Flattop “mountain. Here, above tree line we’ll hike and head slightly south across the tundra of the high peaks. This is a very pristine and special place. We descend Andrews’s glacier and enter the famous glacier gorge with its high lakes and stunning views. We’ll complete this trek by late afternoon, feeling exhilarated by the terrain we have covered and proud of this unique accomplishment. Please contact us to book and schedule.

IMG_4514Join a KMAC guide for instruction and an introduction to the fundamentals of basic snow climbing techniques.

We’ll head into Rocky Mountain National Park up the famous Trail Ridge Road known for its stunning alpine views (Trail Ridge Road is the highest continuous paved road in the United States).

Above tree line, we’ll venture out in this pristine place to one of our favorite snow teaching areas.

Your guide will cover the fundamentals of snow climbing including:

  • Ice axe and crampon use
  • Basic snow safety and snow climbing
  • Roped climbing
  • Ice axe self arrest
  • Snow anchors and belays

This is an educational class and great for a family seeking to experience Rocky Mountain National Park in a unique way. It is also perfect for those wanting to gain snow climbing experience and to become more comfortable in the mountain environment. We tailor this class to the individual and group. It is often combined as a precursor for subsequent climbs with KMAC.

Note: The snow school is offered all summer season. We custom build this course for individuals needing expedition training and more advanced snow and ice climbing techniques all year long.
