How many times have you wanted to ride into the backcountry for several days to hunt or simply enjoy mother nature, but didn't know how to undertake this "monumental" task? This short class will give you the skills to do just that. This class is for beginner to intermediate packers. The class will include lots of hands on packing with gentle mules and lecture type sessions in our classroom. Classes are small so lots of personal time with instructors. Special requests and questions are welcome. Whether you have packed a lot and just looking to improve or whether you have never packed at all, this class would be beneficial to anyone looking to learn or improve their skills.
Classes are held outside of Philipsburg, MT in the foothills of the Anaconda Pintlar Wilderness. Lodging and meals are included. Students stay in wall tents with a wood stove and comfy cots and foam mattresses. All meals are hearty homestyle, just like in the backcountry.
This packing class will be a skills only class. We will not be doing any riding.
