The Spring 2017 Beginners Class is right around the corner. The class is divided into two parts:

  1. Indoor Class (Free: choose between the Dallas or Fort Worth Indoor Class)
  2. Outdoor Class ($125 for individuals / $215 for couples)

The Indoor Class is free and open for anyone to attend. You do not have to be a member of Texas Mountaineers to take the Indoor Class. We encourage you to come to the Indoor Class and see what we’re all about. We look forward to meeting you!

A Texas Mountaineers membership is required before taking the Outdoor Class.  The Indoor Class must also be taken before you can attend the Outdoor portion. The Outdoor Class fees include the required membership fee ($30). If you are already a member, the Beginner Class fee is only $95 per person. If you are not a member, please see our membership page for more information on how to sign up. Also, check out our classes page to see what will be covered in the Beginner Class.
