This is a six day mountaineering adventure design to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to safely travel in an alpine environment.

Topics include roped glacier travel, ice axe self arrest, crampon use, ascending, descending steep snow slopes, equipment selection, camp location. This course will culminate with applying skills learned to summit on Gannett Peak, the highest peak in Wyoming and the Wind River Mountains.
Gannett Peak lies in the middle of the Wind River Mountain range just outside of Pinedale, Wyoming. This is one of the most scenic mountain ranges in the United States that truly will provide a wilderness experience. The trail is mostly flat as it meanders gradually upward, with scenery reminiscent of the Alps in Switzerland. The Wind River Range is also a major fishing destination with lakes averaging every three miles. You will marvel at the wildlife and wild flowers along the trail going into Gannett Peak. The trip will start at the Trail Lake Ranch Trailhead outside of Dubois, Wyoming and we will be traveling on trails, snow fields and glaciers to summit on Gannett Peak. This will be an experience you will never forget. The cost of this trip is $1,000 per person.
Trip Note: This is a fairly strenuous backpacking trip that will require you to carry all your personnel gear. Please see our Equipment List. Your backpack will be 50 to 60lbs so physical condition is required. You will also be required to arrange transportation to and from Wyoming.
