Florida is nice. So are Mexico and Los Angeles. So is going on a long backpacking trip through some of the nicest parts of Arizona and Utah.
What’s that you say? Oh, yes, sorry. That is what seven people did during Spring Break, from Sunday, March 13 to Friday, March 18. › Continue reading

When I came to Rangely, I knew there would be opportunities not available in my hometown of Chicago. Never did I expect that I and a bunch of my friends and classmates would be going to what is arguably the best ice climbing spot in the world: Ouray, Colo. › Continue reading

While the Winter X Games are going on at the Aspen Ski Resort Jan. 27-29, the Outdoor Recreation Program (ORP) will taking CNCC students to the same place at the same time. John Bottelberghe, the project manager and director of the ORP, is in charge of taking the group on the trip.
“Basically, we take the people where they need to be and they do what they want,” Bottelberghe says. “Those who go will share the mountain with the Winter X contestants; they just need to avoid the area with the X Games.” › Continue reading

In the Outdoor Recreation Program (ORP), you can really experience some great adventures. This program has many different outdoor activities that go beyond what you may do on an everyday schedule. In fact, for some of us, these different opportunities may be once in a lifetime. › Continue reading
On April 15, CNCC begins its annual Yampa river trip. Early on this Thursday morning, students, faculty, and river guides will begin the four-day trip down the Yampa River.
Everyone going on the trip will leave the Weiss parking lot at 6:06 a.m., as the sun is coming up, and make the 45-minute drive to Deerlodge Park boat ramp, found upstream of Dinosaur National Monument on Highway 40.
Here, everyone will choose which raft they would like to be in, which guide they will trust in. Unlike last year, where one could choose to be in either a raft or a ducky (inflatable canoe), everyone will be in a raft this year.
During last year’s trip, the group consisted of those who have years of experience on the river and those who had never been on a raft, let alone camping. › Continue reading
Ryan Haugh and Bobby Burns probably don’t know it, but they played a vital role in making the Outdoor Recreation program’s Thanksgiving tripa success.
It was Saturday, Nov. 21, and the van was packed. Stephan Boleng, Jim DeLung, Travis Moody, and Myles Spencer thought they were ready to go when DeLung, the trip leader, noticed something very important was missing: snow chains for the rear tires.
The Outdoor Recreation Program is one aspect of the college that is being changed through Vision 2010 in order to improve the student experience at Colorado Northwestern. Vision 2010 is a revisioning of different aspects of CNCC, from programs to technology.
A big aspect of all of Vision 2010 is incorporating more of the environment into the student experience, and Vision organizers hope that ORP trips will help make that happen.
“Students might come here for the outdoor opportunities the college has; they need to have the best educational experience we can provide,” CNCC Vice President of Instruction David Smith stated.
As a result, the ORP committee for Vision 2010 is trying to bring more students into the ORP programs. › Continue reading
