The trips will invigorate you and inspire you to continue strengthening your hiking skills. Three to five hours is standard. Prepare for the trip by jogging three miles or exercising two or three days a week. Plan on getting starter miles under your belt. Weather conditions can be quite different from the city in the mountainous regions we visit.
Temperatures can be expected to be quite cooler as we head north or to higher elevations and we'll likely encounter more snow accumulation between early winter and spring. Keep your eyes out for an email from our team a few days in advance of your trip. That email will provide updated weather conditions and will alert you to anything additional you should put in your pack to prepare.
Your guide will also make sure you have the necessary gear, such as snowshoes or microspikes, so you can have a great day in the snow. We head outside in any weather, as long as we know it's safe, and we don't let a little snow or wind ruin a chance for an adventure.
