The MIT Outing Club's Winter School is an introduction to self-propelled wilderness winter sports. Taught over IAP since 1971, Winter School covers topics applicable to daytrips, winter camping, and winter mountaineering, including food and clothing; snowshoes, crampons, cross country and backcountry skiing, ice climbing and more. All levels of experience are welcome! Many smaller (10 people max) trips are run to the White Mountains every weekend. Equipment is available for rent from MITOC; participants will need appropriate clothing (to be discussed in lectures). Those going on trips will need to share cost of gas & upkeep with drivers, as well as pay any trail fees in National Forests. \\\\*\\\\*\\\\*Attendance at the first two lectures (Jan 5th and 7th) is required to participate in any of the weekend trips!\\\\*\\\\*\\\\*
