On a trip just east of Vail, CO near the site of Camp Hale - original home of the 10th Mountain Division, we set up camp near a large area of Aspen trees that had recently turned to their golden Fall color. It is always worth the time to make one last trip to the high altitude trails before the snow settles in.
HighTrail supported the 1st annual Overland Expo, East near Asheville, NC. The venue was the Taylor Ranch, a beautiful location that supports a range of events. Unlike the high country of the Rocky Mountains, our recovery and terrain management training was a bit more soggy. A full day of rain put us in the muck and mire for sure. Imagine the clean-up after purposely putting your vehicle in this obstacle. Got to love it!
In preparing for a meeting with the Center for Creative Leadership in Colorado Springs, HTE pre-ran some of the trails in the Colorado Springs area near the famous Broadmoor Hotel. HTE is looking to provide experimental training events to the Center to augment the variety of leadership programs they provide to their clients.
The Honor Foundation is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help US Special Operations Forces transitioning to the civilian job market.
We had the opportunity on a recent trip to San Diego to meet Joe Musselman, the founder of The Honor Foundation and learn about its mission to help US Special Operations Forces transitioning to the civilisn job market. The Foundation has a variety of programs to provide practical advice and mentoring to our serviceman and woman through a diverse faculty and corporate volunteers. HTE hopes to be able to contribute to the the Foundation's programs and provide one-on-one mentoring.
The Canyonlands' rugged terrain is a perfect environment to present totally new experiences for a corporate team. Challenges that cannot be rehearsed abound for the group, allowing new leaders to step up and existing ones to step back. New respect develops for the the untapped, latent talent as well as the leader that can allow and encourage others to flourish.
HIGHTRAIL IS VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE ITS RECENT JOINT VENTURE WITH THE DENVER BASED FIRM OF COLORADO CAREERS.

The joint venture with Colorado Careers will enhance HTE’s specialized leadership programs by allowing us to offer a greater range of training opportunities to our clients.

HTE just completed its latest Leadership Training event. Twelve managers from an energy distribution company spent three days in Moab, Utah meeting new challenges and developing practical, hands-on leadership skills, which they will be able to take back to their company.
These skills will not only add to the company's profitability, but will also create effective teamwork among the managers based on mutual, rather than individual success.
