Making it enjoyable for all

  • Setting a positive tone for the group
  • Flexibility

Bushwalking and ski touring through a natural environment, full of stimulating features and away from the pressures of everyday tasks, shouold give enjoyment to all participants. It is a dynamic setting that provides adventure, challenge, inspiration, stimulation and motivation. It is a situation in which we can explore our individual capabilities, as well as those of the group. However, it is not quite that simple. Enjoyment does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with a trip into the outdoors. While the environment and the experience of being 'out there' are major contributors, there are many other factors which determine the overall enjoyment of the experience. Many of these flow from good leadership.
