Come Prepared

Mountain Weather

Bring warm, comfortable layers of clothing for changing mountain temperatures. The Mountain is at an elevation of 4,200 feet and can receive extreme weather any month of the year.

Drugs & Alcohol

All Gay Spirit Visions events are drug and alcohol-free, and we ask that you leave all alcohol and non-prescription drugs at home. The experience of being in the company of spiritually–oriented gay men in a beautiful mountain setting is itself mind and consciousness altering.

Meals & Bedding

All meals, and sheets, pillow, blanket, and towels are provided by The Mountain.

What to Pack

  • sturdy walking shoes
  • rain gear (umbrella, rain jacket)
  • flashlight for navigating between The Mountain’s many buildings at night
  • any prescription drugs or other personal health items that you might need

Optional Packing

  • hiking boots

  • night light, ear plugs, or white noise generator (accommodations are shared)
  • personal writing journal or sketch pad (you may have creative thoughts and feelings to process)
