Adventure in Colorado & Virginia

Mountain Marrow courses are taught in the contrasting mountain environments of Colorado and Virginia. The stark, rugged Rocky Mountains and the ancient, tree-filled Appalachian Mountains are home to divergent ecosystems, with varied resource availability and differing challenges.

Our Colorado courses are taught across the Front Range, easily accessed from Denver and Colorado Springs. Virginia courses are taught in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Virginia, but our instructors can travel to you as well!

Check out the course pages to see the location of the next class, or reach out to arrange to a custom course near you!
