What to bring with you


Plan to meet your instructors at the venue, look for the REI sign. This is an objective-based program, and although we try our best to adhere to advertised course end times they are always subject to change due to factors beyond our control. Your instructors may decide to turn back due to weather, safety concerns, timing, or group well-being. This is a full day commitment and you may arrive back at the trailhead earlier or later than advertised.
