Why choose Utah?
Utah’s spectacular natural landscapes serve as the backdrop to U-EXPLORE’s intensive, short duration, 2-credit experiential learning classes. We offer over 90 different sections of classes each year, delivered by professional and experienced instructor teams.
From the highest peaks of the Wasatch to the deepest canyons of the Colorado Plateau, students learn about outdoor recreation skill development, natural and cultural history, environmental ethics, and public land conservation. They learn about how to safely manage the risks associated with iconic Utah recreational pursuits, like backcountry skiing, rock climbing, canyoneering, and river running. They learn about indigenous cultures native to Utah, about the forests and deserts, and about the integrated ecosystems that define Utah. Our classes are more than just experiences--they help you learn the skills to explore Utah’s wildlands for yourself.
