Hello Adventure Girl! How do you take full advantage of the winter months? You know, the season that starts out magincal, filled with holiday celebration and New Years resolutions. Then dies down to cinders leaving you with a bland spot somewhere deep within. You get a bit anxious for spring and longer daylight hours. Raise your hand if winter stagnation overrides your sun-drenched lifestyle.
~ Preferring your slouchy sweatpants over grabbing your backpack.
~ Floating daily in a sea of distractions and demands and notifications.
~ Bored zombie-like Netflix obsession stealing sleep hours.
~ Tired from living in the past or in the future ... or just taking yourself for granted.

SATURDAY | TUNE YOUR COMPASS
A postcard winter wonderland awaits you driving into West Yellowstone on Leap Day. You see a white covered wilderness in every direction, surrounding this charming town. Join us at our private lodge for the next 5 days. A welcome reception with appetizers await you. Meet your new trail buddies. Unpack. Gather around the supper table with lively conversations and your first of several ‘soul glow’ experiences. Settle near the fireplace to soothe away any remaining tensions. Before the first evening ends, you’re already beginning to re-orientate your personal compass, setting the tone for your retreat.
SUNDAY | CLEAR A TRAIL
Center yourself upon rising by stretching your muscles and your mind. Gather for a group workshop to identify obstacles on life’s trail … boulders, snags, and potholes tripping you up in your everyday life. As the fog lifts from your mind, we set off on a fresh air snowshoe trek along the pristine Madison River. With a stop to get acquainted with the animated sport of skijoring. Enjoy a couple afternoon hours of free time to explore W. Yellowstone before everyone meets back up for supper at an iconic downtown restaurant.
MONDAY | BISON ADVENTURE
Wake up ready for a big day of exploring the magical winter terrain in YNP. Connecting your soul with nature. Enjoy a hearty breakfast and fill your backpack with today’s trail lunch. Prepare yourself for an amazing snowcoach excursion that drops you off to wander snowshoe/x-ski trails among the world's best-known geysers, including Old Faithful. Make sure you have space on your camera to capture vast snow-covered meadows, rising steam, colorful hot pots, and seasonal wildlife. A delightful, full day for all 5 senses.
TUESDAY | PLANTING WILDFLOWERS
Imagine the thrill of gliding through majestic mountains with a team of Alaskan Huskies pulling you down the trail. Learn how to “mush,” driving your own dog sled team or sit back as a passenger soaking in the snowy landscape. After the dogs win your heart, use the next couple of hours to explore Big Sky, grabbing lunch on your own. We take a leisurely afternoon snowshoe trail that gifts us with a stunning winter waterfall. Enjoy a big bowl of homemade bison stew back at the lodge. Our final celebration dinner, we give gratitude for all the beauty, for all the movement, nature, nourishment, connection, disconnection, and intentional growth we experienced together.
WEDNESDAY | RENEWED SPIRIT
Departure begins after filling your belly with coffee and a warm comforting breakfast. Share in retelling the comedy or stories of your week for our final sisterhood ‘glory om’. Leave our magical winter escape in the mountains fully aware of nature’s wonders and seeing your beautiful self, all wondrous and bright, reflected right back.

A WORD FROM THE TRAIL
" I attended the winter retreat knowing that I would only know one person. There was no problem meeting other ladies as Susan had introductory exercises that had us laughing together. The adventures showcased the best of Yellowstone. One could do whatever they felt comfortable with. Somehow Susan even arranged for us to have PERFECT weather during the outings! I thoroughly enjoyed the personal growth workshops. I met some wonderful ladies. I can hardly wait for the next one. "
Dianne M. | Winter Bison Mixer 2019
