Introducing Packrafting; the most versatile of mountain and water sports. This expedition program combines backpacking with boating, utilizing lightweight rafts we carry in our packs to remote alpine lakes. We’ll trek high into the San Juans and spend our days under prestigious peaks. Carrying all of our belongings on our back, we will spend two nights among wildflowers in Ice Lakes Basin. In the basin, we’ll enjoy epic paddle sessions around a number of pristine high-alpine bodies of water. We’ll master our paddling techniques, play relay games on the water, enjoy gourmet backcountry cuisine, laugh under the stars and embrace our mountainous and majestic back yard. “Packrafters” is an excursion fit for our most adventurous, mountain-loving students. This program will surely bolster your excitement for a life of alpine lake exploration and backcountry fun!
All participants will receive Telluride Academy backpacks, sleeping bags and sleeping pads while participating in this program! We ask that you bring your child’s belongings in a duffle bag on the first morning so instructors can help students properly pack their provided backpacks.
Program departs on Monday and returns on Thursday.
