Achieve your Rocky Mountain high with our Outdoor Program, which offers over 50 different guided trips, clinics, and events each semester. Learn to ski, rock climb, snowshoe, or join a more advanced trip like backcountry skiing or ice climbing. Trip costs vary depending on the length and amount of planning needed, but you can be sure that all needed equipment items are included in the cost.

Want to experience #NEATure on your own? Get all the gear you need with the purchase of an outdoor gear rental pass. We offer tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, snowshoes, and more. In addition to gear rentals, the Outdoor Resource Room (located in the lobby of the Student Recreation Center) also provides guidebooks, maps, and advice from our staff of experienced outdoor enthusiasts to help you plan your next trip. We do live in ColoRADo, so take advantage!
