This highly popular and financially successful seasonal outdoor recreation business provides guided, fully supported, progressive hiking trips on trails exclusively permitted by the USFS. The business is being offered for sale on a completely turnkey basis including all assets, operating permits and all future booked reservations. With its 22-year operating history, exclusive market position, proven profitability and opportunities for increased sales going forward, a buyer can build upon an already successful business operation with full support and training from the existing owners. This is a great opportunity for a physically active, energetic new owner with business development and outdoor recreation interests. The business may be relocated and operated within Colorado.
The business operates during the season from two bases of operations, one owned by the sellers and the other provided by a non-profit foundation. The owners would lease space on their property for 1-2 seasons, but ultimately that base would need to be relocated. The other base would continue to be available.
No direct competition for supported point to point trekking, but other seasonal recreation companies exist for guided backpacking, bicycle and hiking trips.
This business model is primed for expansion due to the popularity of outdoor recreation, the demographic growth in target audience and necessity for support/education while in the backcountry. It is entirely possible to grow this business substantially, especially with targeted marketing. Expansion can include maximizing use of current permit allocations as well as adding additional USFS permit capacity.
Seller will provide effective training and knowledge transfer to the Buyer in all matters relating to Company operations.
The Seller will entertain offers of varying financial and legal structures.
