About Program

Alzar Gap's Wild and Scenic Gap Program gives students the opportunity to ski, backpack, raft and kayak through the rugged, and breathtaking landscapes of the American West. Students can also earn industry-recognized certifications and learn necessary skills to plan their own epic adventures or work in the ski, whitewater, or outdoor education 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!
