Two Harbors, MN - Soltreks northern Minnesota's home base has come out of winter hibernation by launching a winter program establishing their northern location as year round. Located in the heartland, Soltreks will continue to bring heart in their delivery of the therapeutic, logistic and family support they are best known for in their wilderness program. Based out of a cabin near Ely, Minnesota, students travel 3-5 days in this winter wonderland on backcountry skis, pulling their gear in pulk sleds-a sled that distributes the weight of their load, leaving them lighter on their feet. Occasionally one of the directors Siberian Huskies will accompany them. Students camp in tents with a heat source during travel days, returning to the Northwoods cabin on a weekly basis for clinical visits, resupplies and personal growth workshops.

Soltreks has launched the Minnesota winter program with their expertise, integrity, attention to safety systems and techniques that have been proven to be safe, efficient and effective. Director of Program Operations and co-Founder, Doug Sabo quotes a Norwegian proverb "THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS BAD WEATHER…ONLY BAD CLOTHING."

Several recent graduates from the Minnesota winter program shared their pride in their accomplishments by stating, "If I can do this, I can do ANYTHING!" Students seeking independent living and self care skills greatly benefit from this program as they graduate with an empowering feeling that supports them through transitions and challenges.

Founded in 1997, Soltreks mission is to guide individuals and families toward reclaiming their personal power while discovering their true potential. In addition to their customized and individualized approach, their family support continues to drive Soltreks' success as stated by parents of a former graduate, "You do what you say you do."

Enrollments are accepted weekly. In addition to the Minnesota year round program, Soltreks will continue to offer programs in New Mexico from January-April. For more information call Lorri Hanna at 218-834-4607 or email Lorri.
