Introducing Packrafting; the most versatile of mountain and water sports. This expedition program combines backpacking with boating, utilizing lightweight rafts we carry in our packs to remote alpine lakes. We'll trek above Telluride’s big backyard and spend our days under prestigious peaks. Carrying all of our belongings on our back, we will spend two nights among wildflowers and distant valleys beyond Bridal Veil Falls. At Silver Lake and Blue Lake, we'll enjoy epic paddle sessions around pristine high-alpine bodies of water. We'll master our paddling techniques, play relay games on the water, enjoy gourmet backcountry cuisine, laugh under the stars and embrace our mountainous and majestic back yard. Pack 'n' Paddle is an excursion fit for our most adventurous, mountain-loving students. This program will surely bolster your excitement for a life of alpine lake exploration and backcountry fun!
