Fall is in the air here in Crested Butte, but we are enjoying some hot weather for the next couple days. We are lining up our schedule for fall and we have quite a few courses for the autumn months. Our first course is a GPS/Navigation Course set for Sept 18th-20th. This course will go over basic compass navigation as well as GPS use and plotting course on TOPO! For a complete description, check our GPS/Navigation page. October brings our Rock Rescue Course and our Technical Mountain Biking Course. Our Rock Rescue Course is a great opportunity for any climber to increase their skill set and be prepared for an emergency situation. The Technical Mountain Biking Course is held in the ‘birthplace of mountain biking’ in the Gunnison/Crested Butte Valley. In this session, we’ll work on technical riding skills as well as basic backcountry bike maintainance. We are also offering two AMGA courses this fall; Single Pitch Instructor Course and the Rock Instructor Course. Both of these are crucial courses for people interested in AMGA certification or for industry professionals. Call our office for more information or to register for any of these courses. We will also be moving into prime ‘leaf peeping’ season in September/October and will continue to guide both hiking and biking trips as long as the weather holds. There is nothing like hiking or biking on a golden aspen leaf covered trail! Fall is a great time to be in Crested Butte!
