A winter traverse of New Hampshire’s Presidential Range (the “Presi Traverse”) is the quintessential multi-day mountaineering objective in the Northeast. It is an ideal objective for anyone preparing to climb bigger mountains like Mount Rainier or Denali. Our standard trip is 3 days and 2 nights.
If time is short, you should know that the Presi Traverse can be done in two days (w/ a bivouac) or even in a day by strong teams. SMG owner Mark Synnott completed a 25 mile version including Mt. Jackson in 2006 in about 12 hours. If you’re interested in this, please see our Private & Custom Mountaineering option.
This Presidential Traverse is available as a private, pre-existing group, or via our Flexible Booking option (we’ll try to match you with other climbers). Keep in mind that if you have or join a group, the team is only as strong as the weakest member, and if one person has to turn back, typically everyone does.
