Winter Camping Doesn't Have To Be A Suffer Fest!

Join a group of badass women and step outside your comfort zone...you know you've always wanted to! Not sure what you'd be getting yourself into? No stress, we will help you! 

The main goal of this program is to learn how to winter camp safely...and HAVE FUN. We will cover the overall basics; everything from what to pack, how to stay WARM, backpacking food and cooking, clothing, overnight gear, and animal safety! This is a full experience for those adventurous at heart! 

We have a backcountry hut booked, so if the cold becomes too much, you can always retreat to a warm bed! After all, this is not meant to be a suffer fest, but a chance to learn and experience something new!

Our partner on this adventure is Jenna Nodding from Get Outside Adventures! Besides being an all around incredible human being and adventurer, she is an ACMG Hiking Guide, she is certified by the Interpretative Guide Association, and has her Advanced Wilderness First Aid with CPR.
