Voyageur proudly supports local explorer Lonnie Dupre on his current adventure.
We like any type of adventure at Voyageur and we love to hear about adventures in our Grand Marais taproom. A frequent visitor and neighbor of Voyageur Brewing Company is famous adventurer, Lonnie Dupre. Lonnie has an impressive list of adventures under his belt including a non-motorized circumnavigation of Greenland by dogsled and kayak, a 3000 mile winter crossing of Canada’s Northwest Passage by dog team, an ascent of 20,295 Kyago Ri in Nepal, two treks to the North Pole on skis and the solo ascent of Denali, at 20,310 feet, in January 2015.
This winter he is on another adventure and Voyageur Brewing Company is along for the ride. He’s attempting the first solo winter ascent of Mount Hunter, a 14,573 foot technical peak in Denali National Park. He will travel on skis, pulling a sled for some distance, then stash his skis and continue on foot, pulling his sled. Once he begins the actual climb, he will be carrying about 55 to 60 pounds of gear and food in his backpack.
As a proud sponsor of this adventure we wish him a safe and successful adventure and eagerly await his return to Voyageur and Grand Marais.
