Stepping Stone Experiences

Mountaineering is a journey. We realize that you don’t just wake up one day ready to climb Denali, just because you want to. It takes time and experience to develop the requisite skills to move efficiently and safely through varying terrain and conditions at high altitude. That’s why we at AWE offer everything from Stepping Stone Experiences to Peak Expeditions.

Stepping Stone Experiences are incredible adventures in their own right and also help get you ready for bigger mountain objectives. In this category you’ll find 2- to 10-day adventures geared towards all outdoor enthusiasts – no prior experience required. All you need is a good level of fitness and the desire to learn and push yourself in the backcountry.
