About the event

The Women's Backcountry Skills Clinic is designed for those who are seeking guidance on wilderness survival scenarios, who are novices to outdoor recreation, or are looking to build up or refresh their outdoor skills.

Backcountry areas pose many variable risks, so it is important to be well prepared for any type of scenario using what limited resources you have.

We will be covering topics such as:

  • Unwanted wildlife encounters, how to avoid them, and what action you should take if an encounter happens
  • Ten essentials kits, what items you need, and what each item can be used for
  • Emergency shelters, what types there are, and how to build one
  • Trip planning, including gear, route and weather considerations
  • Medical and environmental emergencies, how to manage in the backcountry, and how to call for help
  • Basics of GPS and mapping systems

Having these skills under your belt can save your life in a backcountry emergency, not to mention the confidence needed to execute these skills.

Colorado is a beautiful state to explore with tons of recreational opportunites like hiking, backpacking, rafting, climbing and more. The skills you take home from this clinic can be applied to any type of outdoor activity.


This clinic is taught by an experienced wilderness guide and boasts a supportive and interactive learning environment dedicated to those from all different walks of life and various skill and experience levels.

Not only is this a great educational opportunity, but also a fantastic way to meet others and build friendships with women who share similar interests.

Spots are limited to 8 for a more personable small group experience, but don't wait to sign up- tickets sell out fast!

**Locations will vary for each clinic date and will be announced only to those who have purchased a ticket. Course locations will be held either in Conifer, Evergreen, or Morrison**
