Dear Mountain Friends, 2011 greetings. We hope you had a good holiday and January is going well. What have you been doing? Here we are having the snowiest winter in many years.

My name is Dan Mazur. I lead affordable Himalayan and Everest climbing and walking for SummitClimb, SummitTrek. I also work on volunteer charity with Mount Everest Foundation for Sustainable Development. Please join me and our fun teams of men and women in the mountains.

In just 10 weeks, on March 29th, we visit Everest and her surrounding peaks. The Nepal and Tibet season begins in late March through June, then again in September through December. These seasons have the best weather and life is quiet, peaceful, and friendly out in the Himalaya.

Please register now for 2011. I welcome you and friends to join our fun teams, so thanks for sharing this with everyone, and tell your friends to mention your name when contacting us. We pay a 5% cash commission when your friends sign up.
