Designed for the most experienced Betties who are do adventures on a regular basis. You'll be taken to remote locations over exposed, uneven and challenging terrain, requiring 10+ hours of activity per day and distances of 12+ miles. Altitudes could exceed 14,000 ft.
Sometimes it's hard to escape for a week long retreat. Perhaps you want to have a mini-vacay but would prefer to stick closer to home. Maybe you'd like to try your hand at snowshoing or yoga but have no one to go with. Wouldn't it be nice to have a weekend where you could meet new people, lounge in a beautiful lodge, drink a glass of wine by the fire and practice yoga at the beginning and end of your day? What if this weekend could be planned for you and include all your meals and lodging?
Well then the Winter Petite Retreat was designed with you in mind!

Meet your host:
Susanna is a knowledge-hungry adventurer, eager to learn new skills and take on the outdoors. She is a Wilderness First Responder and Power Vinyasa Yoga Instructor (you can catch her on Thursdays at The River Yoga Studio in Denver) When she's not practicing her Asanas or mastering a new culinary skill, she is practicing her climbing knots, planning an outdoor excursion or training for her next challenge. Susanna is an advocate for mentorship and serves as a mentor for undergrads at CU Boulder through the Professional Mentorship Program. Her Bold Betties events typically focus on furthering outdoor education and skills and pushing you to defy your own expectations. Her leadership style is introspective, challenging, bright and encourages self-improvement.
While it is our intention at Bold Betties to adhere to the event as described, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations. The itinerary is brief, as we never know exactly where our journey will take us. Due to the nature of Bold Betties events, adventuring and travel can be unpredictable. Our itinerary overview is a general guide regarding the event and any mention of specific destinations or wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be visited or encountered. These changes can be made with regards to safety, attendee capabilities, time constraints, weather and various other reasons.
