Course Food

Course participants will determine their own food menus before the course starts. Alpenglow will then purchase and provide the food for the course. You may also bring food with you if desired. The group(s) will also be responsible for cooking the food. Typically, on the last night of the course, the group eats dinner in town at a local restaurant. On the final morning of the course, participants have the option of eating breakfast typically at a local fast food place, or eating your own breakfast (i.e., oatmeal) at the campsite.


The course fee covers the cost of food, group gear, and equipment rentals. The fee does not cover your personal equipment needs or travel to and from Seattle, Washington.
