Intro Into Backpacking (The Wood Life)
July 12 @ 7:00 pm - July 14 @ 3:00 pm$285
The Wood Life (Intro Into Backpacking) is an overnight introductory course to build on your skills to stay in the mountainous, backcountry overnight. At Uplift Adventures, we value building your confidence in the backcountry and teaching you to make good decisions.
We will begin this adventure on Friday night with a classroom session to get your head in the game and eyes on the prize. We will go over how to pack, trip plan and prepare for your adventure. On Saturday morning, we will head out to the trail head to start our adventure. While taking in the beautiful scenery of the South Canadian Rockies, we will teach you field skills including navigation, backcountry cooking, efficiencies, safety, and more.
We are stoked to help you prepare for your next adventures and to do this safely and mindfully.
Is this the adventure for you? This experience is meant for people who have hiked before and want to go to the next level by overnight backpacking. You will want to be fit enough to carry a backpack that is ideally a third your weight and carry it uphill. You may have even tried backpacking before and you want to become better and make better choices in the backcountry.
