Cancellations & transfers

A full refund will be issued to students who cancel prior to the first day of the course. If they’ve already been added to Classroom and/or sent a Gear Guide, a $25 administrative fee will be deducted from the refunded amount.

During the first 21 days of the course, students are permitted to: (1) postpone their enrollment to a future course for a $50 administrative fee, or (2) withdraw from the course and receive a 50% refund.

Students who are still enrolled after 21 days are not eligible for a refund and will not be permitted to postpone their course.

Gear Guide

If you do not reside in the continental US, you will reimbursed $13 USD to purchase your own copy of The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide, a copy of which is included with the course.

If you already have a copy of the book, consider gifting the copy we send you to a hiking friend. No refunds or store credit will be offered in exchange.

Virtual meetings

The virtual meetings are considered supplemental and will not impact your ability to complete the materials. They are typically scheduled between 5pm and 9pm Mountain Time.

Vendor discounts

We reserve the right to suspend your vendor discounts if we determine that they have been used improperly.

Shakeout and post-course

We attempt to give you sound advice during this course. But actions you take during or after the course with the information we have provided are yours and yours alone.
