What we're about

Public Group

The Western Slope Adventurers (WSA) is a bunch of motivated individuals who want to get together with other outdoor minded folks to share hiking, backpacking, canyoneering, dog walks, outdoor film festivals (indoors on winter nights), photography, road and mountain biking, rafting and other water sports; and, in season, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, winter camping (or huts), outdoor ice skating and so much more.

You are encouraged to BE ACTIVE in the group. MeetUps are about just that, actively meeting up with others with shared interests.

Being a'Western Slope' group we are attracting members from Delta/ Montrose, Paonia/ Hotchkiss, Rifle/ Glenwood Springs and other areas. When members want to generate activities in those outlying areas to be posted on the WSA calendar, that is great. Everything need not emanate from Grand Junction. As a matter of fact, we are excited about locals in a variety of areas posting activities so those of us from other areas can learn where to go with the various 'locals'. allows for a principle 'Organizer' and unlimited number of Assistant Organizers and Event Organizers . If you have an event you want posted to the calendar, you can then be designated as the event organizer. After you have initiated a few events you will probably be invited to become an Assistant Organizer (AO). It will be great if we can expand our network of AOs into all the various population centers of the Western Slope.

Western Colorado is a great place to live and we will meetup up to share it and make it even better , for ourselves, our group and and larger community.

Oh and by the way, if you are from Denver, Salt Lake City, Colorado Springs, Price or places even farther away, if you share our interests in getting outdoors, we welcome your membership.
