Students admitted to the program will then attend follow-up meetings on Mondays, Jan. 7th and February 4th, at Arc’teryx Newbury Students will also receive two weekends of instruction in the White Mountains on January 25-27 and February 8-10.

This is a great program. I took it 30 years ago when I was living in Boston and looking to improve my rudimentary ice skills. It's also a great way to meet partners. I can definitely recommend it.
