About the event

Backpacking season is coming up, and we can hardly wait! We at Gearhouse want to get as many different kinds of people out on the trail, so we’re running a series to teach you absolutely everything you’d need to know to get out into the backcountry. Gear, trail selection, weight (you don’t need to be ultralight to have a lighter pack!), food, safety: we will cover it all. At the end of this series, you’ll be confident in your skills to get you and your friends out on the trail. 

We’re donating one 80% discounted slot for this series to a traditionally underrepresented backpacker. If you’re a person of color, female, LBGT, or otherwise underrepresented on the trails, shoot an email to talking about what you’d get out of this series.

Part 1 of 4, 4/13: Gear Basics

Part 2 of 4, 4/20: Trip Planning Basics

Part 3 of 4, 4/27: Food Basics

Part 4 of 4, 5/4: As needed
