Activity Description

This is one of our two expedition-based programs. These are exciting, wonderfully- challenging, and highly-team-building options. Yearly, this opportunity gives recovery participants the ability to take on new challenges and rise to new heights. Through mountaineering participants see the wonderful mountain-tops of Washington and get intentional time to reconnect with self, others and their higher power. At Recovery Beyond, we offer this unique featured opportunity annually.

When: Yearly.

Where: We head out on a snow school, and a climb of Mt Adams and Mt. Baker.

Please go to to enroll and select your activities (you can choose from Fitness, Hiking, Backpacking, or Mountaineering).

We encourage all that are a part of our program to participate in this daily routine, the “Daily Dozen”. It consists of a light workout/warm-up we use every day. You can do it anywhere, anytime; no equipment needed. Try it!

“I recommend you perform the Daily Dozen every day. You need no equipment, not even workout clothing – you can even do this work out in your pajamas. Each exercise takes 1 minute (45 seconds of movement followed by 15 seconds of rest), so the entire routine will take just 12 minutes a day. If you think about it, those 12 minutes each day add up to 18 hours in 90 days. That’s a huge amount of strengthening and fitness to gain by doing something in the time it takes to brew coffee in the morning.”

– Creator of “the Daily Dozen”, John Colver, former IMG Guide
