When planning for a hike, how can you be confident with your plan and feel well-supported on the trail?
Without this confidence and support, risk averse hikers don't go and those that do, worry their plan may not be achievable.
I ask myself this question everyday. It's what guides all my product and support decisions...and has lead to 100's of hikers using my itineraries, mobile maps and planning portals to make their self-guided hiking adventures actionable this summer.
This photo is from a recent trip to Cabane Des Dix where I practiced using ropes/harness/ice axe to prepare myself for an early season hiking adventure in June. It's a little earlier than I'd normally prefer to go, but I'm up for a challenge and know how valuable the up-to-date information will be for our self-guided hikers planning the Tour du Mont Blanc, Walkers Haute Route and/or Tour of Monte Rosa this year.
It will help them be confident with their plan and feel well-supported on the trails
