Snow Basics Course – Oregon is scheduled for 2014!
We do not always offer this course unless popular demand brings it back! Enough of you have, again, voiced an interest in a snow skills training course this year up in Oregon, so here it is: 2/28-3/2
Mountain Education is considering adding three new SBC course locations for 2014:
Once these new course locations receive enough students, the course will officially be “open.” Please get your applications in soon!
Check out our Events Calendar for more information on upcoming wilderness skills courses!
Welcome to Mountain Education!
(Our website is currently under construction, so keep checking back for more information as it is constantly updated!)
We are a Wilderness School impassioned to teach you how to have safe, fun, and enriching backpacking trips of your own. In our minds, after 47 years of hiking and teaching in the backcountry, there is nothing more therapeutic than a “walk in the woods!” However, there are some things to be aware of before you go….
So, wander over to the “Campus Theater” to watch our instructional videos, walk next door to the “Library” to read our published Articles, go to “Academics” and look over the Courses we teach, sit in at the “Chapel” to feel the Spiritual side of mountain experience, or step into the “Bookstore” to purchase something. If you have any more questions, the “Student Union” is the place to start!
Student Union: The SU is the first place to go when you come on Campus! They can answer all your questions and connect you with your next desire.
Academics: If you are looking for one of our Wilderness Skills Courses or just the Application to attend, go here!
Library: If you are interested in reading about our thoughts on something, want to know “How-to” do a particular skill, are curious about how a particular Product Test went, or just want to start reading one of our Books or Articles, go here!
Chapel:Time spent in wilderness brings healing to the spirit. Step over to the Chapel to read about the Spiritual side of wilderness life!
Bookstore: If you want to purchase an entire Article or watch a complete video, you’ll find it in the Bookstore! Plus, there might be some of our endorsed gear or clothing you’d like to buy.
Administration: If you’d like to know more about “behind-the-scenes” at Mountain Education or you just need access to our Forms or Policies, this is the place!
