Frequently Asked Questions
How long are we going to be in sessions?
Most sessions will be between 60 and 90 minutes long.
What kind of clothes do I need to bring?
Well, it is early March, so don’t forget your winter coats! Hats, gloves, socks, and the works are great for outdoors, especially for skiing/snowboarding. Keep in mind that we’ll be doing yoga, hiking, and skiing/snowboarding, so bring comfortable shoes and clothing for these activities.
What does registration cost cover?
The registration cost includes lodging, food and educational materials. Each attendee is responsible for additional charges such as skiing/snowboarding activities.
What do I do if I don't want to ski/snowboard?
We will have other activities available if you choose not to ski/snowboard. We are working on finalizing them and will post them shortly.
Will I need to bring extra spending money?
You won't be needing any money at the retreat itself, but we recommend bringing extra money for gas, and a small amount of spending cash for food at the slopes.
