Whether you are first time hiker or more experienced backpacker looking for advanced tips from our experienced group of leaders, we've got something for you. Check out our Beginning Backpacking, Intro to Hiking, and Lightweight Backpacking Seminars! We've got two seminars happening in Seattle and one in Tacoma at the end of next week!

Lightweight Hiking and Backpacking Seminar

Thursday April 7 | Seattle Program Center

This course teaches the principles, strategies and product knowledge of lightweight backpacking and climbing to fit your personal goals, style, needs and trip conditions rather than taking the one-gear-fits-all approach. We provide extensive coverage and demonstrations of the latest clothing, gear and food to help you design your own individual system. We also look at innovative products from home-based gear designers as well as resources for making your own gear. Learn how to carve 10%-50% from your pack weight in this class in an affordable and safe fashion.
