We’ll be covering skills in navigation, backcountry cooking, and more! 

Snowshoeing
Howdy friends! If you’re as excited about the coming winter as we are, come join us for a snowshoe at Mt. Spokane on December 2nd! We will meet in the office at 8am and get back to campus by around 1pm. The hike is around 4 miles round trip, with moderate elevation gain. We will have snack and hot bevvies at a covered shelter at Bald Knob, with plenty of time to play in the snow! Come out for a nice walk in the fresh winter air!

Schweitzer Opening Day

Us too! Come celebrate the opening weekend of Schweitzer and get those legs back in shape with a day trip to the mountain over opening weekend! We will drive over for a great day of skiing on Sunday, December 2nd to take advantage of the final weekend before we start cramming for finals. Any experience welcome, ski stoke required! Leaving at 7:30am and arriving back on campus by 5:00 (leave the mountain at 3:30)

Skiing
Tired of your friends complaining about studying when you want to go skiing? Don’t want to study for finals yourself? Come study the terrain of Schweitzer mountain instead! We’ll spend the first half of the day showing you our favorite spots on the mountain so you can get to know it for yourself, and the second half you’ll get turned loose to go explore. We’ll meet in the office at 6:45 and be back by around 5:30pm, which means a full day on the slopes! Participants must have a Schweitzer pass or buy a day ticket on the mountain. Any experience welcome!
