Western Maryland is certainly not well known for its Ice climbing venues yet with cold winter temperatures, ice climbing is a possibility in the surrounding areas. Deep Creek Lake State Park, McHenry, MD; Ohiopyle State Park, Confluence, PA; and the Cheat River Valley all offer ice climbing opportunities for those dedicated adventure seekers.
However, the weather doesn’t stop the college from offering excellent programming. We have traveled to the Adirondacks, NY and to the White Mountains, NH to offer Eastern Mountaineering, Ice Climbing and Cold Weather Outdoor Living Skills.
We offer both Cross Country and Telemark Skiing with Professional Ski Instructor Association certifications, if the student qualifies. Locations we use are Whitegrass, Canaan Valley Resort, Herrington Manor State Park, and the Wisp Resort.
