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.

For the 9/14/14 trip, I am coming from Denver late on 9/13 and have booked a room at the Comfort Inn. Anyone in a similar situation? I am understanding the Comfort Inn has a shuttle airport to hotel. thanks, Ida

My wife and I are signed up for the program that starts on Sunday September 15. We are planning to arrive a few days early and rent a car with the idea of possibly keeping it for the week. Would anyone be interested in sharing cost and using it to get up and back to the airport.

I’m signed up for this program starting 9/22/13 and wasn’t able to get an arrival flight into Bozeman in time to catch the shuttle. I was wondering if anyone else is in the same predicament and is interested in sharing a cab or, perhaps, car rental? I arrive in Bozeman at 3:50pm on Sunday, 9/22.
