“I learned so much about my strength as an individual, as a leader and as a team member. The most rewarding would probably be how much it has helped me grow as an individual to better myself through all of the skills I have learned.”
Mountaineering at NOLS features glacier travel, pristine alpine lakes, astounding views and the teamwork and technical skills you need to get to the highest points in the world.
Forest and ocean. Glacier and river. Heather and pine. This is the Pacific Northwest, with its temperate rain forests, stunning ice-covered volcanoes, hidden bays and coves, and lush old-growth forests.
Home to bald eagles, black bears, mountain goats, elk, porpoises, and whales, this will be your classroom. The Pacific Northwest is the birthplace of the outdoor industry, and NOLS has been the region’s outdoor education pioneer for more than 35 years.
We specialize in courses for outdoor educators and trip leaders, and our easy-to-access facilities in Conway, Wash., an hour north of Seattle, were specifically designed to support NOLS’ educational expeditions.
We’ll outfit you with everything you’ll need for an expedition into spectacular backcountry, from Oregon to British Columbia. Whatever your method of exploration—sea kayaking, rock climbing, glacier mountaineering, backpacking, or sailing—you’ll be in for the experience of a lifetime.
