Spiritual Ski Trips with Rabbi Jamie Korngold

Private Skiing or Snowshoeing
Trips with the Adventure Rabbi

A unique opportunity for one-on-one and small group learning as well as phenomenal guided skiing and snowshoeing with the Adventure Rabbi, Jamie Korngold.

For many people, the mountains are their true spiritual home. They feel more “connected” outdoors than they ever do in a synagogue or church. Rabbi Jamie invites you to take this intuition to the next level.

Come experience the peace and contentment that the mountains offer.

  • Have you had some of your most spiritual moments in the mountains?
  • Are you open to a new Judaism that doesn’t ask you to be at a synagogue on Saturday but instead embraces the outdoors as a pathway to spirituality?
  • Are you ready to look at Judaism and see how it can be freshly meaningful?
  • Are you open to the idea that Judaism needs to evolve?
  • Do you accept that we can actively wrestle with our religion to find a way to make it relevant and accessible?

We offer private guided skiing of Copper Moutain or Vail Moutain at your level. Choose from the magnificently groomed runs or the steeps of the powder-filled, back bowls

During the chairlift rides and breaks, you will have a private, ongoing learning session with Rabbi Korngold

Or, choose snowshoeing in the pristine backcountry of Rocky Mountain National Park. Here you will find the peace and tranquility that so often eludes us in our frenetic lives.

Learn about Judaism’s ancient wilderness roots and the wisdom that the outdoor holds for us.

Learn about ancient Jewish wilderness teachings.

Explore concepts like Shabbat and God on your terms and see if there might be a meaningful and rational way to incorporate them into your life.
Ask the questions you have been wanting to ask.

Who:

This unique opportunity is available to individuals, families or small groups up to 4 people. What an amazing way to spend some special time with your son or daughter, spouse, fiancee, business partner, or entire family!! Additional fees for larger groups.

Where:

Our spiritual skiing / snowshoeing weekends are generally at  Vail Mountain or Rocky Mountain National Park both in Colorado.

What:

Every weekend is designed to fit your needs and schedule. You can choose from snowshoeing or skiing or both.

Sample Weekend Schedule:

How does welcoming the oasis of Shabbat into your ski day enrich your experience? Does it nourish your soul? Does it help you notice and appreciate the terrain and views?  Does it improve your powder turns? Come find out.

Friday night:

Join Rabbi Korngold and her family for a down-to-earth Shabbat dinner, with homemade challah and casual conversation. This is a chance to get to know each other, so the rabbi can shape the skiing weekend to meet your needs.

Saturday:

Rabbi Korngold will meet you at your hotel and walk with you to the lifts to begin your day of guided skiing at beautiful Copper Mountain, Colorado, or at the base of Vail, Colorado. We will select trails that are appropriate to your level of skiing, as challenging or simple as you wish. We will ski at your pace, as much or as little as you want. All along the way, there will be opportunities to talk about the spirituality of skiing and discussion about ways to bring the exhilaration and peace you feel in the mountains back home with you.

There are a myriad of choices for lunch, from fine dining to grab and go options

Saturday night:

You choose from either a free night on your own or joining your rabbi-guide for dinner at one of the mountains fun dining experiences.

Sunday:

Today we strike off into the backcountry to snowshoe. Embraced by the beauty of the wild mountains, we walk and talk, learning about the mountains and life. We will explore how Judaism can fit into your life in a deeper, more meaningful way, as we steer toward pathways of contentment and peace. Here you have an uninterrupted chance to ask the questions you’ve been wanting to ask while exploring some of the most glorious mountain terrain in the world.
