2014 Adventure Trip Calendar
5 years ago I organized a group of 15 people to hike the Swiss Alps. Since I knew this would be a group with a wide variety of hiking ability, I built an itinerary specifically for those who were coming. It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to do it again!!
We spent 5 days based in Zermatt looking over the Matterhorn and 5 days based in Lauterbrunnen (Jungfrau Region).
Since I personally can't go to Switzerland every year and hike the Swiss Alps, I partner with a close friend of mine who DOES go every summer and takes people to all of these amazing places!
When I go back to Switzerland, this is exactly what I'll do... again, since it accommodates so many different type of people. We had some in our group who loved hiking 12 hours every day, and others who were done after about an hour. It allows everyone to do what they want without holding anyone back.
Some of us went mountain biking down an alp!
Some went white water river rafting one day as well.
That's my Christmas gift to you!
I'll provide plenty of outings that are perfect for all abilities.
No worries! Email me anytime OR talk to me in person about your concerns during several CALENDAR EVENTS when I'll have more time to visit with you i.e. Snowshoe Orientation, $20 Clothing Sales, or "Work for Food" Winter Garden Tour and Parties.
I'm working hard on posting many outings on my website for 2013. Check the calendar often!
I hope you'll join us!
It's shaping up to be another great trip and we have had some AMAZING trips during the past 12 months! We will have around 40 people on this trip. That means plenty of smaller groups with similar abilities so everyone will have fun. Register now IF you want to get all the details that I'll be sending out during the next few weeks.
Rain, snow, shine, etc. we are out there! I always tweak the outing to fit the weather and road conditions but I don't ever cancel, so come!! It may be a shorter outing and we may not go into the canyons if it's raining/snowing but it's always fun!! I have special local trails that I use on days that have inclement weather. It always feels so good to get outside, even for an hour regardless of the weather!
Hopefully, if the weather looks dry, I'll post for either Wednesday or Thursday, Dec. 12 or 13. I plan to post 2 of these outings. The second one will be posted for the following week, on a different weekday.
Several trips are being planned for 2013. Bryce is just the first one for 2013. I'll let you know as soon as they post, since I know you want plenty of notice.
Anyone who spends any time in the Wasatch Mountains during the winter months should become familiar with the good, bad and ugly side of snow! I mostly talk about how beautiful and magical it is. You'll see plenty of photos I've taken of a spectacular winter wonderland, however, I pay close attention to and study up on Avalanche Danger, watching the daily activity of what's happening up in our mountains.
I am very grateful for the Utah Avalanche Center and how hard they work to educate and keep everyone of us safe while we are playing in the snow all winter long.
Check out the videos they have produced and subscribe to their daily newsletter to see what's happening often.
We support and raise money for the Utah Avalanche Center since they work very hard for very little money. They always need more money so donate to their cause if you can.
It's helps us all enjoy our winter playground whether we are snowshoeing, zipfy riding, skiing or snowmobiling!
Check this blog out if you are into Skiing or snowshoeing!
It will remind you just how beautiful the mountains are during the winter season!
Many people ask me this question and I always feel bad when I don't have an exact address to give them. This is called "6200 South UTA Park n Ride". It's a big paved parking lot and doesn't have an exact address written anywhere. Here's the next best address that is near by to help you find it.
Leave yourself extra time when you come the first time. Make sure you have my cell phone, listed below, to call if you get confused.
Once you've found it, it's super easy to get to and close to the I-215 freeway.
Go to the Old Mill Golf Course, 6080 South Wasatch Blvd.
Drive SOUTH on Wasatch Blvd another 1/4 - 1/2 mile.
Continue focusing on the same WEST side of Wastach Blvd.
After passing the last office building on your right, turn into the parking lot and drive all the way to the SOUTH end of the parking lot.
When you can't go any further, park your car and look for us.
That's where we meet.
Keep my cell phone number handy and call me if necessary.
If you get there and don't see anyone, don't panic.
Depending on the day, we may be running a few minutes late but WE ALWAYS SHOW UP!
