The winter retreat is a 3 day winter program where the campers are introduced to snowshoeing, snowboarding and winter survival. Campers spend a day learning winter survival skills before constructing a snow cave that they sleep in. It is remarkable, the confidence that can be instilled by spending an overnight, at 10,000' in the dead of winter with temperatures well below zero. The campers are rewarded with a day at Monarch Ski Resort, learning to snowboard. 2019 was the first year for the winter retreat. It was such a remarkable success, the program is now a permanent part of KOH.
