Weber State Outdoor Program To Anchor OAX Education

The Outdoor Adventure X (OAX) team believes that the knowledge you take into the backcountry is as important as the equipment you bring along.  That’s why we’ve partnered with the local experts at Weber State Outdoor Program to anchor the educational programming we’re producing at Snowbasin in Huntsville, Utah on June 17-18, 2023.  

Weber State Outdoor Program is known for experiential learning that promotes an active, healthy lifestyle – outside.  The program also offers rental services for outdoor gear and equipment for their students and also the greater community.  

At Outdoor Adventure X, Weber State will host knowledgeable experts for skills clinics and demonstrations all weekend on-mountain at Snowbasin and on-water at Pineview Lake.  The OAX education series will also teach outdoor ethics and the tenets of responsible outdoor adventuring as part of roundtable discussions and more.

Weber State Outdoor Program will host various presentations and clinics throughout the event weekend including: 

  • Wilderness First Aid Scenarios in the Field
  • Adaptive Climbing
  • Yoga For The Adventurer
  • Intro To Paddleboarding
  • Demo:  1 + 2 Person Inflatable Kayaks
  • Guided Hike:  Mt Ogden
  • Thoughtful Practices To Care For The Land:  Leave No Trace
  • Trad Climbing Skills – Placements, Anchors, Tactics 
  • Roundtable: Climbing Objectives: Prep and Logistics
  • Intro to Mountain Biking – Guided MTB Ride
  • Certifications, Careers, Experience in the Outdoor Industry (Universities)

“Providing high impact educational experiences is what we do,” said Daniel Turner, Associate Director – Outdoor Program, Weber State. “The Weber State Outdoor Program is ecstatic to partner with OAX to bring Outdoor Education directly to the consumer, in one convenient venue.
