In late-June and July we are running ten 3- and 5-day guided backpacking trips in Colorado. These are learning-intensive experiences, with the ultimate goal of giving you the knowledge and skills to undertake trips of your own with confidence and competence. Learn more.
Of the 88 total spots,
five two are currently open, on these sessions: Colorado Adventure 1A: June 25-29, with Mike Clelland and Paul Magnanti; Colorado Fundamentals 1B: June 30-July 2, with Andrew Skurka and David Eitemiller;
- Colorado Fundamentals 2A: July 13-16, with Alan Dixon and Jessica Winters;
- Colorado Adventure 2A: July 16-20, with Alan Dixon and Jessica Winters; and,
Colorado Adventure 3A: July 21-25, with Alan Dixon and Mary Cochenour.
For more details and up-to-the-minute availability, consult the trip schedule.
The Fundamentals course will be held in Wild Basin in the shadow of Longs Peak. The Adventure trips will follow segments of the Pfiffner Traverse on the west side of the park. Yes, you will be walking right through the meadow in East Inlet where I took the lead photo.
To help offset higher travel expenses and having missed out on most of the Planning Curriculum, I am offering a $200 per person discount on all open Colorado sessions.
