    Wilderness Skills

    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.

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.
