Wharton Ice Climbing

  • Earth Treks Wharton Ice Climbing 001

  • Earth Treks Wharton Ice Climbing 002

As the days get shorter, the arrival of winter brings with it the cold temperatures needed to get the ice growing. In the not so distant past, Adirondack winters were endured, not enjoyed. Fortunately for us, modern gear and clothing have transformed a once harsh experience into an activity mere mortals and MBA’s can enjoy. Ice climbing is a blast, and an Earth Treks ice climbing seminar is a great way to get in on the fun!

Earth Treks’ ice climbing seminars are taught in the Adirondack Mountains of New York near Lake Placid. The “Dacks” boasts exceptional ice climbing, stunning scenery, and reliable ice conditions. This is a private trip for the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business.
