Mt. Rainier: Emmons Seminar To the Top

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons, led by Mike King, is back at camp after their summit day.  The team walked into a cloud cap as they began their ascent.  Winds sustained at 40 mph with gusts of 50 mph.  Now back at Camp Schurman, the winds are dying down and the cap is slowly diminishing.  Other than that, not a cloud in the sky.
Tomorrow they will descend from Camp Schurman and drive back to Ashford where they will celebrate their week on Mt. Rainier!

Mt. Rainier: King & Emmons Seminar Team Make Summit Attempt

RMI Guides Mike King, Jenny Konway, Jessie Poquerusse and Ben Ammon are leading the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons June 11 - 16, 2017.  The team met on Sunday and spent the day discussing logistics of the trip including an equipment check and some technical training.  Their second day was spent on the slopes above Paradise practicing rope travel, ice axe arrest and cramponing techniques.  On Tuesday morning they loaded up in the shuttle and drove to the White River Campground where they met the trail head and started their climb.  Yesterday they moved to Camp Schurman at 9,440’ and have continued their training.  This morning they made their summit attempt but due to low visibility and tough walking the team made the tough decision to turn around 11,400’.  They have returned to Camp Schurman where they will do some additional training.  They will spend their last night on the mountain tonight and start their descent tomorrow.  We look forward to seeing them back at Rainier BaseCamp tomorrow afternoon.

Alaska Seminar: Davis & Team Return to Talkeetna

Groundhog day again. We woke to better weather but there was still enough weather in Talkeetna to keep the plane grounded. Some of us were in the tent sleeping when we got the word that K2 planes were inbound. The team rallied quickly and moved gear to the runway and by early afternoon we were back in town. Typical Alaska weather for us but a great introduction to the team. What a great group of people to share time with in the Alaska range. One of a kind collection of personalities and memories to carry with us forever. Thanks for following!

RMI Guides Leon Davis, Mike King and Jessie Poquerusse

Alaska Seminar: Davis & Team Unable to Fly Off the Glacier

May 26, 2017

So this dispatch is not coming from the green grass of town but the expansive white glacier of the Kahiltna.  We thought the weather might break long enough for a flight in but alas the clouds remain limiting visibility. The team kept busy in the morning though. After breakfast we stomped down a foot of new snow on the runway so planes could land and then we waited for that faint din of turbine engines. Now it is evening and we are turning in as new snow falls. Tomorrow is another day so we will wait and see what it brings.

Alaska Seminar: Davis & Team Pack Up, Then Unpack

This mornings skies were a welcome sight after a few days of white. Clear skies also brought colder temps for us at Kahiltna Base Camp. It was not long before the clouds rolled back in but that did not stop the team from having some fun. We ventured to a crevasse field and gave folks a chance to see the inside of a the icy maw and climb out. Lots of laughs and pictures today around those cracks. Later in the afternoon we received word from K2 that they were launching the fleet to drop a team off and that we should be ready within the hour. That was a frantic hour indeed but the team got it done in short order. As soon as the dust settled we found out that the planes turned back so we set up a new camp downtown on the airstrip.  Forecast is calling for more snow the next few days so we will see what the future holds.
