I’m Chris Allen, and I’m here to help you gain all the skills and knowledge you need to adventure outdoors safely and confidently! Do you imagine yourself becoming a competent skier, rock climber, mountain biker, canyoneer, hiker, backpacker, or all of the above? That’s what I’m here to help you achieve.

For over two decades I’ve helped countless people learn the skills and gain the confidence they need to get outdoors and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Many of these people started from zero knowledge and are now able to get out on their own with knowledge of the gear, skills, and techniques required to adventure safely and responsibly. Don’t worry if you think you need tons of time with hands on instruction – the secret is – you don’t. I’ll ensure you have the skills you need before certifying you. You’ll be confident in your abilities when you’re through. So let’s start living the adventure lifestyle and get out and live life more fully!

I’m passionate about helping others get out and live an adventure life. That’s why I started Adventure School. Through this website, our YouTube Channel and social media outlets, I regularly publish content related to all the various adventure activities I enjoy or want to learn more about. The list is long and has many overlaps but here is a start to what types of activities you can expect to find content on:

  • Rock Climbing
  • Mountain Biking
  • Downhill Skiing
  • Backcountry Skiing
  • Canyoneering
  • Hiking
  • Backpacking
  • Trail Running
  • Snowshoeing
  • Geocaching
  • Caving
  • Rappelling
  • And many more…

I publish specific adventure skills, tips, and gear reviews on my blog, and YouTube channel and I’m also working on in-depth courses for each activity that will allow you to get into the nitty-gritty of each activity. I’m starting with outdoor navigation. The course is coming along and available for pre-purchase here. It will be comprehensive of all you need to know to get started including quizzes and tests that will require you to demonstrate your skills and knowledge so you can be confident that you can get yourself there and back again without getting lost.
