    This clinic is a basic introduction to avalanche awareness and safety. Learn the basics of snow science and avalanches in this class session and one-day field trip. We’ll snowshoe into the backcountry on Mt.

  • Image preview All Day: Map & Compass Snowshoe
    Explore the backcountry of Oregon’s tailless volcano by snowshoe! This clinic establishes an understanding of the tools and basic navigation skills required for outdoor exploration. The knowledge you can gain can form an important part of your leadership development, and is useful for anyone who loves to take outdoor trips. Snowshoeing takes a fair amount of energy, but it is great exercise and doesn’t require any previous experience.
  • Image preview All Day: Skate Ski Clinic 1
    Skate skiing (also called race skiing) is an exciting, fast-moving sport. It’s like ice-skating, but on snow. If you already know how to rollerblade or ice-skate, you can pick up skate skiing in no time! Come give it a try with our skate ski equipment! We have everything you need, at no extra rental charge. You’ll learn on the groomed tracks at the Teacup Lake Nordic Center on the east side of Mt. Hood. These trails are groomed each weekend by the Oregon Nordic Club. Since the area is well marked, once you learn the basics, you can go at your own pace and ski whatever loops you choose. For more information, stop by our office in Templeton.
  • Image preview All Day: Umpqua Dunes/Oregon Coast Weekend
    On this trip we’ll head to Umpqua Lighthouse State Park on the Central Oregon Coast for two days of great hiking.  This part of the coast has the largest coastal sand dunes in the world and sports remote sandy beaches.  We’ll hike through transition forests, sand dunes, and beaches during this weekend trip, and stay dry and warm in our deluxe yurts at night.  You’ll definitely want to join us to explore this part of the state that is uniquely Oregon!

  • Image preview All Day: Eastern Columbia River Gorge Hike 1
    Come explore the dry side of the Columbia River Gorge east of the town of Hood River. This dramatic landscape, sculpted by the largest floods in earth’s geologic history, has spectacular hiking trails, a lot less rain, and usually a good supply of sunshine. Join us to get some exercise, fresh air, and to see spring come to the east side of the Cascade mountains while hiking up to some stunning viewpoints above the Columbia River.
  • Image preview All Day: Intermediate X-Country Ski Clinic 3
    This is a one-day trip to Teacup Lake Nordic Area on Mt. Hood for INTERMEDIATE level cross-country skiers.  After a ski skills clinic that builds on basic skills, we will head out to explore the surrounding groomed ski trails and practice the techniques we’ve learned. The trip is appropriate for people who already have basic cross-country ski skills.  The trip fee includes all transportation and gear.  If you are a more experienced skier, you are welcome to sign up for this trip to get out and do some more independent skiing (skate or classic) on the 20 km of trails at Teacup Lake.
