Backpacker - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

Take your trips to the next level—far­ther, safer, and more mem­o­rable—with our new on­line classes. Backcountry Nav­i­ga­tion

We part­nered with the Colorado Out­ward Bound School to bring this iconic in­sti­tu­tion to your home. Out­ward Bound in­struc­tor Siena Fry teaches map and compass skills, route plan­ning, nav­i­ga­tion tricks for chal­leng­ing con­di­tions, and more in this sev­en­part course.

Wilder­ness First Aid Ba­sics

When you’re miles from the trail­head, 911 isn’t al­ways an op­tion. Don’t go into the backcountry with­out know­ing how to treat com­mon in­juries like cuts, sprains, con­cus­sions, and other mi­nor traumas. In this class, in­struc­tors de­liver step-by-step guides on how to help an in­jured hiker so you never have to think, “I wish I’d known.”

Out­door Photo School

Shoot like a pro with tips from a pro. Ad­ven­ture pho­tog­ra­pher Adam Barker walks you through ev­ery as­pect of tak­ing bet­ter pho­tos, from com­po­si­tion and light­ing to gear and pro­cess­ing, for land­scapes, ac­tion shots, and more. If you want to bring back trip mem­o­ries that will stay vivid for­ever, take this class.

Thru-Hik­ing 101

Whether you dream of thruhik­ing a long trail or tack­ling one in sec­tions, this course cov­ers ev­ery­thing you need to know to make your jour­ney a suc­cess. Se­rial thru-hiker Liz “Snorkel” Thomas of­fers hard-won tips on plan­ning, train­ing, gear, nutri­tion, re­sup­ply, and the al­limpor­tant men­tal game that helps some hik­ers stay on the trail when oth­ers don’t. Our classes’ self-paced for­mat lets you take them when­ever you want, on any device, as long as you have wifi. For de­tails and reg­is­tra­tion, go to aimad­ven­tureu.com.
