Course Information:                                                                                             Quest courses are designed for beginners, so you will not be expected to demonstrate high levels of ability, but they provide a physical, psychological, and emotional challenge. Courses occur in areas that often involve steep terrain, rough and narrow trails, wet or muddy conditions, and inclement weather. Most Quest activities are movement-oriented activities involving some strenuous activity. Quest staff will provide you with a safety briefing to prepare you for the activities and any safety issues you might encounter or skills you need.

Quest will provide all necessary equipment including sleeping bags, tarps/tents/ground pads, cooking gear, Carbide Lamps, rafts, boats, spray skirts, dry bags, paddles, harnesses, helmets, ropes, skis, ski boots, ice axes, crampons, wetsuits, booties, lifejackets, hardware and first aid supplies. You may bring your own equipment and use it with the approval of Quest staff.
