Waterville Valley is hosting a unique women’s only retreat, REI Outessa, from September 13-16, 2018.
Outessa has become synonymous with remarkable beauty, fun-filled adventures and newfound friendships. They’re all in large supply in Waterville Valley, a charming New England village in the heart of the White Mountains.
REI, the outdoor co-op and national specialty retailer, created Outessa retreats for women only. The three-day outdoor adventures are designed to connect women with the outdoors in a supportive learning environment. The getaways are filled with activities and inspiration, offer access to coveted gear and products, serve up great food and wine, and create a welcoming environment for making new friends and lasting memories.
Susan Viscon, REI senior vice president of merchandising, said, “This fun environment is designed by, and for, a supportive community of women who like adventure.”
More than 20 of REI Outdoor School’s top female instructors partner with leading outdoor brands to host a full range of adventures, including hiking, trail running, mountain biking, rock climbing, trail photography, paddle boarding, kayaking, climbing, yoga, backpacking, wilderness survival training, outdoor cooking and more.
All equipment and gear for activities, instruction, and chef-prepared meals are included.
