Fox Mountain Guides offers mountaineering courses in both New Hampshire and North Carolina. Whether your objective is to climb Mt. Washington or train for a larger objective, our mountaineering programs are tailored to help you achieve your goals.

New Hampshire Mountaineering

Do you need to know how to burrow out a tent platform in thirty mile an hour winds or best practices when navigating in white-out conditions? Our instructors will take you up to Mount Washington, where the snow is deep from December through March, and show you how to live, eat, and travel efficiently.

Our New Hampshire Course is a skills-packed, three day program designed to improve your knowledge and skills for winter mountaineering objectives. This program is based in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Participants will spend at least one night camping in the mountains. In this program we will cover fast and light movement tactics and technical systems, putting together objectives that cover thousands of feet of terrain, teaching you that efficiency is one of your greatest risk management tools in the big mountains.
