About Program

Alzar Gap's Rockies to Patagonia Gap Program gives students the opportunity to ski, and backpack through the rugged, and breathtaking landscapes of the American West and Patagonia. Students can also earn industry-recognized certifications and learn necessary skills to plan their own epic adventures or work in the ski, or outdoor industry. Extensive outdoor experience is not required, we would love to teach you all the skills you need to thrive in the outdoors! We keep our groups intentionally small so that we lessen our impact, allow for authentic leadership opportunities, and create life-long friendships. If you are looking for a meaningful adventure in a world-class destination, check out our webpage and get in touch!

Diversity & Inclusion

BIPOC Support

At Alzar Gap, we believe that small, engaged, and inclusive communities provide the best environment to foster the growth and development of future leaders. As a program that travels the globe and brings students together from many states and countries, we know that authentically engaging with other cultures is a fundamental part of the learning process for our students. We welcome our constituents’ questions, comments and suggestions (those are invited to be sent to dei@alzarschool.org).
