Josh and Marisol were pretty amazing instructors and really allowed us to figure out situations for ourselves. I not only gained valuable skills on the course, but I also learned where the holes in my knowledge were located and some resources to continue developing long after the course ended. There were a lot of moments for self reflection and self-directed growth. I’m planning to start my AMGA guiding track soon, and I feel way more prepared after going on the SIET expedition. I had been on expeditions previously, but the idea of planning one myself seemed like an impossible task before going on my SIET course… now it definitely feels within my skillset. Thanks guys! The memories are epic.
