But in a few years I want to travel west, and I want to see glaciers for the first time in my life. Where is a favorite spot to see glaciers?

So I am in need of travel & climbing insurance for a potential trip to Nepal in October. It is a requirement with the company I am planning on using. While I have been to Mexico and SA on climbing trips I didn't purchase any insurance for those trips so this is totally new to me.

help with grad school snowshoeing survey


My name is Beth and I'm a student in the Washington state Mountaineers Basic Alpine Climbing class. I'm also a graduate student at Seattle University studying Sport Management. I'm working with snowshoes.com and my Seattle U advisor to do a survey about snowshoeing.

I would be very grateful if any summit poster users who have ever snowshoed could help me out by taking my survey.

Thanks a million!
