Living in the mountains, it’s not too uncommon to see snowcapped peaks when you wake up in the morning in fall. Footage of ski areas receiving snow has ramped up, and in my home state of Colorado, Arapahoe Basin opened on Oct. 21. Personally, I hope to get a few more hikes and tennis matches in before snapping on skis again, but I’m always ready when there is enough of the white stuff.
Looking for an exceptional mountain outing that has memory-making and team-building opportunities galore? We’ve found adventures that involve helicoptering to a dog-sledding camp, having a sleepover or skijoring with adoptable pets, walking through the forest with a wolf, dining in the wilderness with a llama and mingling with mustangs.
