WHAT IS CWI?
is an outdoor educational program that presents a new look at what
life and nature have to offer. CWI will stimulate your
mind, challenge your body, and stir your spirit. CWI provides its
participants with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to pursue
further activities in the outdoors. We focus on four specific areas:
backpacking, rock climbing, mountaineering, and whitewater rafting.
Our trips are customized to fit your group’s exact needs
and desires. Back
guides (including the owner) are expert outdoorsmen who work year
round in the industry. In addition to professional ski patrol,
they have years of experience in leading whitewater rafting trips
and overland mountaineering expeditions. They are outdoor enthusiasts
who pursue outdoor adventure as a way of life, and their skills
are at the top of the field. Every guide is a part owner and trained
specifically by the Colorado Wilderness Institute, and many also
have previous experience with other similar programs. Each and
every trip has an experienced leader who is personally committed
to every individual’s success, safety, and enjoyment. Our
leaders have guided all over the western United States including
California, Washington, Utah, Wyoming, and Alaska. Additionally,
all trip leaders are EMTs with CPR certification, hold college
degrees in outdoor recreation, and have a minimum of five years
experience as a professional guide. Back
Our first priority is the safety of our students. We use only the
BEST climbing equipment, the BEST rafts, and the BEST guides.
The experience and training of our guides makes them the safest
instructors in the business. Every trip has a certified EMT and
a mountain-rescue trained guide who works in the industry year-round.
All guides are equipped with the BEST first aid equipment, and
a cell phone. Students can be reached anyday throughout the trip
in the event of an emergency. You can feel truly comfortable
knowing that you will be under the safest instruction possible
throughout the course. Back
In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, it’s easy to ignore
the opportunities available in your own backyard. Whether you close-by
or thousands of miles away, with CWI the COLORADO ROCKIES are right
at your fingertips. Maybe you’re not aware of the opportunities
that exist, don’t know how to access them, or simply lack
the skills to enjoy them. CWI will help! This part of the country
offers breathtaking high peaks, scores of mountain streams and
raging rivers, pristine high-country terrain and scenery, and uncountable
rock faces perfect for climbing. We can show you a variety of activities
and give you the skills to enjoy them. Whether you live in Grand
Junction, Summit County, Gunnison, or Denver -- if you’re
in Colorado, we can come to you. And if you live outside the state,
whether in Minnesota or Florida, from New York to California --
just get to Denver International Airport, and we’ll come
get you! Our flexibility ensures your satisfaction. Back
The difference between CWI and other similar companies is size.
What does this mean to you? Quality! Flexibility! Personal Attention!
Satisfaction! Being a small company lets us make available to
you the best most experienced and the best qualified guides for
every trip. Unlike bigger companies with scores of courses and
hundreds of guides (which can make trips more difficult to control
and personalize), our small size allows us to focus on each trip
individually and provide you with the best experience possible.
All our courses are led by owners who will give you great attention
to personal detail. You can be assured you will have the best
trip possible. Additionally, because of our low overhead and
advertising costs, we are able to keep costs down, all the while
offering the absolute finest adventures possible. Back
