WEEKEND HAPPENINGS

Snow Forest Road

FRIDAY | TUNE YOUR COMPASS

A postcard winter wonderland awaits you driving into West Yellowstone. You will see a white covered wilderness in every direction, surrounding this charming town. Meet up with us at our private condo space for the next 4 days. Warm appetizers will be ready for you. Meet your new trail buddies. Unpack. Dust off the week. Before the evening ends, we will use an exercise to re-orientate your life compass, setting the tone for your retreat. Settle around the fireplace to soothe away tension. Use evening time to relax or soak in the hot tub. 

SATURDAY | BISON ADVENTURE

Wake up on vacation ready to explore and connect your soul with nature. Enjoy a nearby breakfast buffet that you can make as healthy as you wish. Prepare yourself for an amazing tour and trails to snowshoe/ski past America's best known geysers, including Old Faithful. Make sure you have space on your camera to capture pile of snow, rising steam, colorful hot springs, wild animals, and a photo style scavenger hunt. You may choose instead to go shopping in town, take a spa day, visit the museums or travel other nearby trails. Everyone will meet back up to enjoy a sit down dinner in one of the historic restaurants downtown.

SUNDAY | CLEAR A TRAIL

Center yourself upon rising by stretching your muscles from yesterday's miles with a quick yoga session. Gather up as a group around the fireplace to identify where weeds, timbers, and pebbles are tripping you up in your everyday life. A great session to clear away clutter. Your taste buds will be delightfully romanced for lunch with beverages and dessert at the Taste Of The Trails event in the heart of town. Refuel while snowshoe/skiing between 4 food stations and revel in the winter landscapes. There will be time to relax after all the activity. Enjoy homemade bison stew and salad for supper at the condo, create a happiness rock, play games, view almost full moon, or hit the hot tub.

MONDAY | SIMPLICITY MAP

Sleep in a little bit before filling up your belly with coffee and a warm comforting breakfast. You might find time to retell the comedy and stories of the weekend. Share your awe inspiring photos from the scavenger hunt. Gather near the fireplace for an exercise on simplifying your life. Revitalize your soul and emerge with a brand new perspective. Leave our magical winter escape in the mountains fully aware of the natures wonders and seeing your beautiful self, reflected right back.

"If you ever find yourself empty from something you cannot know or name, find a stretch of ocean, a field, a mountainside, or even a stretch of clouds, or a tree. Because there are a 1000 simple ways to fill your tired soul so you can remember how to be, how to see, and most important how to breathe." ~Victoria Erickson

"Thank you Susan and the RCKN Outdoor Sisterhood gang for introducing me to snowshoeing in 2017! I got my own pair for Christmas from my boys and now we have a new Winter sport to share. When can we get a group organized in Seattle? Happy New Year!"  #rcknit  #rcknoutfoorsisterhood
