Information Session: Mountaineering, Trekking in the Andes @ Campus Recreation Outdoor Program Tickets
Feb 12 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Information Session: Mountaineering, Trekking in the Andes @ Campus Recreation Outdoor Program | Missoula | Montana | United States

Do you want to have the experience of a lifetime this summer? On Feb. 12, from 5-6 p.m. in the Outdoor Program there will be a free slideshow and Q&A session about the Mountaineering & Trekking in the Andes study abroad trip to Huaraz, Peru. The trip has changed people’s lives! Ask anyone who has attended.

The trip starts out with some acclimatization hikes in the areas around Huaraz, then continues as a four-day trek (one of the most popular) in the Cordillera Blanca, the Santa Cruz Trek. It is approximately 30 miles of trail, and the trek includes views of spectacular glaciated peaks, alpine valleys, scattered quenual forests and crosses a pass of 14,700 feet. With donkeys helping carry the load, the trek is made even more enjoyable and allows you to focus your attention on acclimatization instead of how heavy your pack feels at altitude.

Navigationally speaking, the route is easy to follow, and if there are questions the donkey driver knows the way. In regards to the mountaineering course, this course will prepare participants with little to no mountaineering experience to be contributing members of a climbing team by first taking a careful look at the many hazards that snow-covered mountains offer, then systematically learning the skills and techniques to combat these dangers. A peak climb objective is included to provide participants with a supervised climbing experience in which they can take the lead (as appropriate) of the climb with an instructor supporting and advising as necessary.

Register by: April 2

Cost: $2,500 (potential to be lowered depending on enrollment); $200 deposit due April 2 and total payment due May 1; includes food, gear, park fees (does not include plane ticket)

Quartet for the End of Time by Olivier Messiaen @ Music Recital Hall

French composer Olivier Messiaen wrote his seminal chamber work Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the End of Time) while he was a prisoner of the German army during World War II. The first performance, given for an audience of about 400 of his fellow prisoners of war and their prison guards in Stalag VIII-A, resonates as poignant example of the transformative power of music even in the most dire circumstances.
