Ex Ed: West Elk MTB Challenge
Gunnison and Crested Butte are widely regarded as iconic Mountain Biking destinations. From the fast and flowy trails at Hartman Rocks, with high desert beauty and mountain backdrops, to the infamous alpine trails of Crested Butte where the sport was born, we will explore these legendary locations while learning and honing our riding skills. Much of our time will be spent in the saddle mountain biking (with occasional side hiking trips), and students will also be responsible for planning, setting up camp, cooking meals, and cleaning.
We will start by camping and riding in Gunnison CO to develop our skills both on and off the bike as we build towards the bike handling and camping required to explore Crested Butte. Wednesday through Friday we will ride carefully selected trails around the Crested Butte area, and return to Aspen on Friday evening. Each day will include biking, hiking, camping, team building, and journaling.
