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
3975 feet at the summit Lincoln Peak; 4,083 feet at the summit of Mt. Ellen.

Equipment Requirements
Ski equipment and suitable outdoor clothing. You may bring your own ski equipment, or rent a ski package from the resort rental store. Because weather is variable, several removable light layers, with one warmer jacket, are recommended. Helmet and UV sunglasses/goggles strongly advised.
