This sign up is just an application; all participants will be notified of acceptance to ASW soon after the application is filled out.  

Consider the dates and training carefully.  This is a popular event.  If you you drop out of the course it may effect the other participants. 

Remember, climbing, and especially mountaineering, is a dangerous sport. Mt. Washington has recorded many of the worst winds and coldest temperatures on record - anywhere. Climbers have died on this mountain before, and they will in the future. Do not underestimate what -20 degrees F air temperature feels like, especially for days on end.

Potomac Appalachian Trail Club-Mountaineering Section (PATC-MS) organizes an Alpine Skills Weekend each winter to share our member’s mountaineering experiences from Mt. Rainier, Denali, Aconcagua and more. 

No Prior Experience Required for ASW. Participants must obtain (rent, borrow, buy) general mountaineering equipment and winter clothing for possible extreme severe weather conditions.

Send all questions to Coordinator Ethan Atwood ( or Training Coordinator Dave Ciesla (
