Our Nordic trips were a phenomenal success last year, all filling to capacity.
Those going on these trips typically buy their food and cook together, as well as carpool

|December 31 - January 2 - A return to our perennial favorite near
Steamboat - Strawberry Hot Springs.|
|January 27-29 - A return to the cabins of the Buford Foundation, just a

|February 5-9 - Winter in Yellowstone.
You'll be back in Jackson right when the bus arrives for the Alpine trip. The Frosty Fun

Cameron Pass in the Colorado State Forest. A wide variety of terrain is available here, so
come along, whatever your skill level. |

Brush Creek Work Center. Enjoy trails around Ryan Park or up on top, head over to
