The Outdoor Program in Campus Recreation is kicking off a summer of exciting outdoor adventures beginning with snow climbing in the Never Summer Mountains.

"Peak Out" with crampons and ice axe

Snow climbing in the Never Summer Mountains is our most popular course and will be held Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13. This exciting two-day backpacking course will put you high in the mountains climbing steep snowfields and reaching summits in a fun and educational setting.
