“The High Mountain Institute, located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, sends students on extended wilderness expeditions (ranging in length from 9 to 18 days) and teaches students what they need to know to successfully backpack and/or ski in Colorado and Utah. Each expedition provides the opportunity to connect with the natural world, develop personal leadership and interpersonal skills, and use wilderness locations as an academic textbook. Academics are place-based and experiential. The world around becomes our textbook allowing for deeper understandings in each course.”
