Course Information: (read everything below to make sure that you are prepared for this trip)

***This course is not designed for the beginner.

Most 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, rafts, boats, spray skirts, dry bags, paddles, harnesses, helmets, ropes, skis, ski boots, ice axes, crampons, wet-suits, booties, life jackets, hardware and first aid supplies. You may bring your own equipment and use it with the approval of Quest staff.
