*Intermediate/Advanced Camp attendee requirements: You do not have to be confident on technical terrain or have significant ultra experience, but you do need to be able to handle a full day mountain adventure with time on feet. This is not an excessive mileage type camp, but it is a significant amount of "hours at exposure" type camp. You need to be aware of your limitations and strengths and be able to take direction from camp guides in order to safely navigate the more complex aspects of this camp's terrain. Ultra running and race history is preferred. Please email any questions or concerns to initiate a discussion on which camp may be best for you. All applicants are screened prior to acceptance to ensure skillset for safe participation in our camps.
