Hello, I am a runner and a hiker. I am planning to hike Mt Whitney in Feb 2022. Can someone please help me find the groups training to hike Mt Whitney. My fitness lever is good and I can push myself to achieve what's needed. Thanks in advance.
You can reach out to me at aishwaryarajan75@yahoo.com.
Regards,
Aishwarya Rajan

In February 2022, Mt. Whitney will have full winter mountaineering conditions. If you are not experienced in travel over snow and ice, you might want to consider waiting until warmer months like July or August. Good luck!

Depending on snow levels the Whitney Portal road may have all three gates closed. In that case you will be parking your vehicle at the bottom of the road switchbacks and hiking an additional 3 1/2 miles up to the Portal.

You are going to need to be much more than a runner and hiker to climb Whitney in February. You don't "hike" Whitney in winter. If you have to post here looking for a group to train with, it is a sign you aren't equipped in snow mountaineering and team winter travel; both of which are essential for winter Whitney ascents. I would recommend reaching out to professional guiding company if you really want to climb in February. Otherwise, wait until June at the earliest.
