1. Rocky mountain national park is snow-free so alpine climbing is in great shape. We have been doing many Alpine rock routes such as a petit Grepon and the diamond on longs peak.
2. Eldorado Canyon state park and Boulder have been hot. We recommend climbing early in the day or going up higher in altitudes such as Boulder Canyon close to Nederland, Estes park, or Rocky Mount National Park.
Again with the current weather being hot around Boulder, we recommend mountain biking around Nederland at Magnolia trails or close to Idaho Springs and Georgetown. Riding trails have been in great shape.
Temperatures on the upper Colorado and eagle rivers have been warm. We have been doing morning trips for this reason. As more water is released into the upper Colorado river basin temperatures should drop.
Around Boulder and Denver: Boulder Creek and South Boulder Creek have been fishing very well with dry flies.
Hiking peaks such as Grays and Torreys and Longs have been in great shape. All of our hikes are private and custom so we could base a hike with what’s ever best for you and your group when you’re booking.
We’ve been working with lots of individuals and groups to increase risk management skill sets in the outdoors. Some include:
1. Managing third, fourth, and easy fifth class terrain to climb peaks.
2. Rock climbing anchor systems and learning to lead.
3. Learning to read whitewater rivers and rowing mentorship for oar boats.
4. Wilderness survival training.
5. Fly fishing entomology and subsurface fishing techniques.
6. Mountaineering skilled development for the US Army and department of defense.
7. Leadership development lessons in nature and outdoors.
8. Mount Everest, Mount Kilimanjaro, and Mount Whitney training programs.
