We are very excited to once again be putting together plans for the signature event of The Rocky Mountaineers—The Kercher Glacier Classic! We hope many of you will once again join us for what is always a great time in our crown jewel of a National Park just to our north. Whether it’s your first time or eighteenth, it will be a weekend of great hikes, climbs and camp camaraderie!

The Philip L. Wright Zoological museum is running a citizen science project to better understand how hoary marmots are adapting to climate change. This is a follow up to the many marmot specimens in the museum. You can volunteer to check out a site where marmots were collected in the past, and this could be a Rocky Mountaineers trip. And if you spot hoary marmots outside of Glacier Park, please let Alden know.
