River Expedition - South Pecos

This is easily the staff favorite of all the courses we offer. Spend five days paddling and camping on the beautiful Pecos River in Texas’ Chihuahuan Desert. For remote paddling in duckies we go to the South Pecos River down in Texas. This river is one of the most pristine in the country. This trip can be 20, 40, or the full 60 miles. It won't be easy but there will certainly be more than enough reward. This trip is full of contrast: cool storms followed by hot sun, gentle currents lead to swift rapids, waking from a nap to cliff jump into the water and the final headwind leads to victory at the takeout!

River Expedition - Big bend

A favorite trail, this loop includes Pecos Baldy and Truchas Peak as the primary goals of the trip. Truchas is the second largest peak in New Mexico and to many, offers the most spectacular vistas and views. Shhhhhhhhh!! This beautiful wilderness area is one of the best kept secrets of Northern New Mexico.

Canyoneering - Utah

Our canyoneering trip is real adventure. There's no mistaking that canyoneering is in-your-face but with a guide it's an adventure well suited for beginners. In the North Wash of Lake Powell, learn the essentials of how to "drop" a canyon, how to travel through the desert, and safety systems. Each day learn new skills and practice those skills while dropping canyons. The Navajo Sandstone offers squeezing slots, large subway tunnels, natural arches, and stunning rappels off amphitheater overhangs. Join us for a week of adventure and mostly likely the best sunsets of your life.

Back Country Ski & Snowboard

This course is great for beginner to intermediate skiers and snowboarders who haven’t spent a lot of time in remote mountain snow country but are anxious to learn. You will learn more about skiing or snowboarding, discover things you need to know about remote slope snow safety, learn about avalanches, what causes them to happen, and how to deal with challenging situations that may arise. Best of all, you'll get the chance to run some exciting backcountry slopes in that are off the beaten path and where few others get to ski.
