I participated in the inaugural Mountains 101 course and it was an incredible and enlightening learning experience. I am very grateful to David Hik and Zac Robinson for making available such a high quality educational program. I am a 25-year member of the Alpine Club of Canada and have had many self-propelled journeys into the mountain backcountry, both in summer and winter (most recently this past March into the International Basin of the Purcell Mountains). I have also read numerous books on mountains and mountaineering. So I fancied myself as knowing quite a bit about mountains prior to commencing this course. How wrong I was! As I progressed through the lessons, I realized just how little I actually know about all things cordillera. Even if you only have a passing interest in mountains, I would highly recommend this course. The videos are absolutely stunning!
