Sooo ..... What is Canyoneering? Canyoneering is an emerging adventure sport which has grown significantly in popularity over the past decade. This exciting sport combines hiking, wading, swimming, jumping, sliding, boulder-hopping, scrambling, down-climbing, sometimes packrafting and always rappelling — often over waterfalls! Physically, it takes significantly less upper body strength than rock climbing, and is therefore a sport that can be enjoyed by a much larger spectrum of the population .. young or mature .. tall or short .. large or small. If you can hike, you can canyoneer! This sport has unique risks and requires a very specific set of technical skills to enjoy it safely. Rock-climbing, caving, mountaineering and swift water training teach related skills, but Canyoneering has become highly specialized. Our basic course gets you from "That looks cool!" ... to "Woohoo!" in 3 days! Check out these Vimeos and see why we are hooked on the sport! https://vimeo.com/148696696 https://vimeo.com/104538804 Prerequisite: None! This Technical Canyoneering Course (ACE-L1) is a beginner to intermediate course which teaches the skills necessary to safely descend canyons as part of a group (being a competent participant and the knowledge to recognize and implement safe canyon practices). This course is designed to quickly get the beginner up-to-speed on basics, to give both the rookie and intermediate canyoneer new tools for his/her toolbox, and will help intermediate canyoneers refine their current skill set! See a list of the TOPICS and SKILLS, Policies, and Testimonials on our website! Instructor: Klaus Gerhart - ACE Master Instructor/L5 Certified Guide, Certified Tactical Rappel Master, Wilderness First Responder, Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Technician, Whitewater Rescue Technician, Technical Rope Rescue Technician, Basic Mountaineering Instructor, Map & Compass Navigation Instructor and a Master Educator for Leave No Trace wilderness ethics.

With the IKON Pass offering so many different mountains, we are trying as many out as we can! :) Let's add Winter Park to the list. I heard many good things about the mountain and I have a good feeling it won't disappoint! We are staying at the Lion's Gate Lodge - nestled 10 minutes from the resort and a short walk/drive to downtown Winter Park. So far, we are only able to secure a 3 bedroom unit. That means we only have 6 spots. If we are able to secure more lodging, we will open it up to more people! :) We have the Lodge from Friday 2/1 until Friday 2/7. You can stay any portion of that week. Dee is running this trip and is planning on arriving 2/1 and flying back to LA on the evening of Sunday 2/3. The cost is the same no matter which dates you stay. If you have extra time and can stay a bit later, definitely try to visit Copper Mtn and/or Eldora Mtn, which are also part of IKON Pass. (There are also a bunch of Epic Pass mountains about 1.5 hours away.) The cost is $375 per person. The funds we put together is for lodging, some breakfast items, snacks and other goodies around the house. Please budget for flight to Denver, shuttle to the lodge, lunch and dinner, and miscellaneous stuff (T-shirt, anyone?). The free shuttles in town are really easy to use (10 minutes to get to the mountain) and we are actually staying in town, near restaurants and all! :) Want to go? Only a payment, not an RSVP locks in your spot. This event is cross-posted on many meetup groups with Mix Professionals (www.MixProfessionals.com) being the main meetup. Therefore I need to centralize all the confirmed attendees in one group. In order to lock in your spot you MUST RSVP and submit payment via my main meetup group by going here: http://bit.ly/WinterParkMeetup You are not confirmed for the trip until you RSVP via the main group AND submit payment. Let me know if you have any other questions! :) Anna
