Adventure Awaits


Looking to escape the chaos of everyday life? To get out of your head and tune into nature?

The Backcountry Retreat Center is just what you need. 

Our coaching retreat center allows you to submerse yourself in our various programs while soaking up the breathtaking beauty that surrounds you. Choose from one of our coaching programs that include overnight stays and short-duration hikes, multi-day backpacking trips, rock climbing, or snowshoeing during the winter. 

The Backcountry Retreat Center is nestled in the Roosevelt National Forest, just 25 minutes west of Boulder and a short drive from Denver International Airport. Come and experience the calming sounds of the wind whistling through the mountain pines, wildlife chittering away outside your door. 

Commune with nature while taking advantage of the many nearby hiking trails. When the weather is right, head out to Eldora ski resort which is only 20 minutes away. 

Bask in the unobstructed views of the Continental Divide from our cozy 2-bedroom efficiency apartment that includes all the necessary amenities for a warm, comfortable stay.

When you come to the backcountry, you intend to experience the beauty of the great outdoors – something greater than yourself. You leave the backcountry with a deep sense of belonging and the understanding that you can create your own unique experience of life by choosing how to engage with your thoughts, and that this innate ability resides somewhere deep within you as much as in your surroundings. 

Come spend some time in this tranquil getaway.

“Jeff’s guidance and coaching while preparing for this adventure set me up for success.  He gave me a detailed training plan for each week, beginning with short hikes with no pack load and progressing to multiple weekly hikes with a full pack load.  As I was acquiring gear for the trip, Jeff provided advice on what to look for and what to avoid.

We held a one-hour coaching session each month, which helped Jeff track my progress and help me prepare mentally for the challenges we could face on our trip.  We reviewed maps, pictures from previous excursions, and likely weather events so that I had a good idea of what to expect and be prepared for.

Once we got underway, all the training time and gear preparation came together.  I was physically prepared for the demands of a multi-day hike at elevations above 12,000 feet.  I had the proper gear for the weather conditions that the Rockies can throw at you in the summer months.   I also had a guide who I could count on to get me to the summit and back to the trailhead in one piece.  Jeff is also a fantastic backcountry cook…providing the good calories we needed during the day and a delicious hot meal every evening…with a nip of good Colorado whiskey for dessert!”
