Skinning with John was a great experience. I really enjoyed learning about the gear and techniques used to get up the mountain. We made it to the top of the Prospector lift, which was a lot farther than I thought I could go (I'm in my mid-50s). Going off-trail into the woods was really special. Clear views, trees, and silence. It was good to learn about uphill policies at WP, so I'm interested to learn more about how to make this a regular activity wherever I go. This is a new way to enjoy the mountains for me!

My uphill adventure was excellent. Hannah my guide was engaging, knowledgeable, and strong. The magic began when the tour trail turned into the wood. Beautiful and a true escape. I recommend WP uphilling to anyone interested in Alpine Touring.
