Join us on the South Platte river with a local pro to learn how to fly fish! Includes instruction + gear.

Our trip photographer will lead a special session giving us tips and best practices for taking the perfect shot while exploring the outdoors. No fancy equipment necessary, she will be teaching us some tips and tricks using our smart phones to take professional grade photos!

Our version of a “canvas and cocktails” in the Mountains!  We will setup outdoors in an inspired setting, wine provided by a local winery (just down the road from the ranch!). A local artist will instruct us on how to create a beautiful landscape painting.

A local instructor will guide us through an hour of yoga for all levels designed to relax, energize and empower us.

Join a professional guide/instructor for a paddle on scenic high alpine lake. Rentals provided but limited, discounts for those who bring their own SUP. Includes clinic on SUP basics for those new to the sport.

We will summit a 13,000 foot peak!
Includes a pre-hike clinic on gear, planning, expectations and technique for steep/technical inclines/declines.

Other activities:
