The natural environment and groups of people are much the same-- often unpredictable, have an incredible teaching ability, and are a whole lot of fun. Put the two together and you have the potential to accomplish amazing things.
We have chosen to truly live up to the standard of “We’re ALL In.” We can proudly say that today we uphold this bar by hiking or climbing or paddling or riding on our own time, not only because we expect it but because we simply love to. Today (and we expect tomorrow to be the same) we’re All In – truly 100% engaged.
We LOVE the places where we work and play. That’s the easy part. When you love something, certain responsibilities follow – like guardianship, protection, and stewardship. It’s impossible for us (or anyone) to ‘do no harm’ to the places we love. We should balance providing the highest quality experience for our participants with doing the least amount of harm. That’s the hard part.
