Westwind is a very remote facility – your gear will be transported via truck, but you will need to be prepared to hike 2 miles into camp. If this is out of reach for you, please contact for accommodations. Arrival and departure schedules will be shared in your pre event details. There are no options for arriving late or leaving early.

This Summit is designed to be both in-class and on-trail experiences. Please come prepared to participate in thoughtful and challenging discussions, learn new leadership skills, and, of course, do some trail work!

**You will be asked to electronically sign the e-waiver for this event, provide proof of vaccination or recent negative COVID-19 test result, and perform a self-assessment health screening within the 24 hours preceding the event.** The crew leader for this event will verify that you have completed these requirements at the trailhead safety talk before the trail party begins.
