Mankind's underdeveloped climbing skills and inability to digest tin cans are two ways in which evolution left humans inferior to goats. It's mind over Matterhorn with this Groupon.

On Saturday, August 3rd, competitors plunge into the wilderness surrounding Big Rock Candy Mountain Resort to see who can complete a challenging five-mile course in the shortest time. The course criss-crosses the Sevier River, requiring participants to swim, wade, or walk depending on the river's fluctuating water level. To make it more challenging, the organizers pepper the course with rope climbs, tire runs, and a 30-foot wall-climb. The first place runner receives an adventure package from Big Rock Candy Mountain Resort, including a stay in one of their log cabins and activities for four, while the second place winner gets a one-night stay at the Eureka Casino Resort and a choice of tour for two. A portion of the event's proceeds will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project, an organization providing assistance to injured service members.
Roaring ATVs charge up Southwest Desert sand dunes in a storm of golden particles. Miles away, intrepid explorers rappel down the sheer cliffs of the Valley of Fire. Elsewhere, kayakers drift across the placid surface of Lake Mead in the sunset, and passengers inside a helicopter witness the majesty of the Grand Canyon from the breathtaking angle normally reserved for sightseeing birds. These seemingly disparate adventures have one thing in common: the people who imagined them. Each trek was dreamed up by the founders and guides of Awesome Adventures, who see the landscape of Nevada and Utah not as harsh and wild, but as a source of endless entertainment and education. The enthusiastic staffers—who specialize in recreations ranging from rock climbing to whitewater rafting—encourage visitors and locals alike to step outside the bounds of the city and explore exciting new vistas.
