We want to welcome two awesome guides to the amazing guide roster at the 2016 MWV Ice Fest!
Welcome Erik Thatcher (on loan from Mooney Mountain Guides) and Jimmy Voorhis (on loan from Cathedral Mountain Guides).


Guest Guide, Erik Thatcher

Erik Thatcher:  His psyche and passion for climbing is contagious!  It all began with the White Mountains as his playground during his high school years, and has grown to currently be a full time guide for Mooney Mountain Guides and also runs the climbing program at the Holderness School.  We are so honored and psyched to have Erik, an incredibly talented guide and climber, and an absolutely awesome person!

  • Erik’s guiding is TBA on Friday & Saturday, but you can learn to ice climb with Erik on Sunday in Ice Climbing 101

Guest Guide, Jimmy Voorhis

Jimmy Voorhis:  This guy rocks, and has a sweet mullet to top it off and a Dartmouth College grad to top it all off!  But in all seriousness, Jimmy is an incredible climber, guide and his energy and smile is contagious.  In the late spring/summer he guides for the Alaskan Mountaineering School and this winter he is on load from Cathedral Mountain Guides during the Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest!
