Mountaineering Seasons

I’ve spent some time recently thinking about taking on a couple of “big” outdoor pursuits in 2015, and have started researching some commercial expeditions.  I structured all of the information I gathered in a table which highlights the seasonality of various trips and destinations by location and month.

Leading contenders at this early stage are climbing Denali (Alaska), climbing Ama Dablam (Nepal), crossing the Greenland Icecap or skiing to the South Pole.  I’d love to do an 8,000er once in my life – Broad Peak in the Pakistan Karakoram is my pick of the bunch – but I’d want to build up to that by getting some expedition experience through doing a technical peak in the 6,000-7,000m altitude range first.
