Keen to learn new skills or prepare for that big overseas mountaineering adventure? Try one of these introductory courses by Climbing the Seven Summits, part of a suite of alpine academy adventures organized and overseen by author and Everest climber Mike Hamill.

A great time for one of these beginner expeditions is summer. Snowshoe to beautiful Blue Lake and camp under the stars in this pristine alpine environment. Or, if you’re up for a bigger challenge, try a winter trek with snowy ascent of Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest peak.

No matter the season, Climbing the Seven Summits' instructors will work with you to leapfrog your knowledge of expedition snow camping, mountaineering and backcountry safety, and climbing, including ice climbing.

Climbing the Seven Summits is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
