Program #18188RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Elevation Note
Altitude 7,000-10,000 with downhill skiing daily.

Equipment Requirements
Participants can bring their own ski package, or rent a ski package from many on-site ski shops. Because Utah's weather is variable, several removable light layers, with one warmer jacket, is best for comfort. UV sunglasses/goggles strongly advised.
