Improve your leadership skills by exploring the Wind River Mountain range through this seven-day backcountry backpacking, llama-supported expedition designed for professional executives. Navigate the technical and environmental challenges of field-based learning that holds transferrable skills that will serve your professional care and rejuvenate your spirit. This expedition provides invaluable opportunities to see yourself in a dynamic wilderness setting, and to enhance not only your outdoor skills, but also your apporach to leadership in new and challenging circumstances. 

The Wind River Range is characterized by rugged, glacier-carved mountains renowned for sheer granite walls and world-class fishing. You will travel through mountains surrounded by towering peaks, glistening alpine lakes, and perennial snow. Immerse yourself in the natural environment and learn with fellow executives and professional outdoor leaders.

Successful expeditions require the same essential skills found in the professional world--effective communication, problem solving, positive influence, and strategically delivering results.
