Maine Wilderness Guides Organization Winter Training Course A Success

MWGO dogsledding

The 2007 Maine Wilderness Guides Organization winter guide training course was a great success. Cold weather, lots of snow, and a beautiful remote camp allowed us to cover a wide variety of topics applicable to guiding during the snow season. Kevin Slater brought two of his dog teams which he taught everyone about, and we also traveled by ski and snowshoe to a remote winter wall tent camp, where the lessons continued. It was a great opportunity for young guides, and one I wish I had when I got started.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
