Northeast alpine steward with hiker

With such good weather this year, it isn’t surprising that the number of visitors to the High Peaks has again skyrocketed. This is the sixth year in a row to set a record for the number of contacts made. To put a 36,355 person year in context, when the Summit Steward program started in 1990, stewards spoke with just over 7,000 hikers. This year saw a fivefold increase over that season.
