This class is our entry level required introduction to our Hiking, Backpacking, Scrambling and Climbing classes!
Wilderness Skills is designed to prepare outdoor enthusiasts for hiking & backpacking in the forests, mountains and trails of the Pacific Northwest. The course is offered twice each year - once in the winter and once in the spring, and includes two 8 a.m.-5 pm Saturday workshops. These include extensive hands-on and outside activities.
The two all-day-Saturday workshops (First Saturday and Second Saturday) required for this course are open to students of all skill levels interested in hiking in the Pacific Northwest. Students planning to take Alpine Scrambling, Basic Climbing and the Backpacking course need this course as a Prerequisite. The class is taught twice each year- typically in January and again in April.
