EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -Maybe you’ve eyed the complex ropes course on the UW Eau Claire campus, wondering what it would be like to climb among the clouds? Well, once again this summer, you can!

“We have that two hour program and that’s really strictly designed as a recreational experience, group comes out just to have some fun on their own time and we just facilitate them through that,” says Al Wiberg, Ropes Course creator. “Really the primary goal of the ropes course is to build teams, and to help people figure out how to work with one another.”

Eagles View Challenge Ropes Course is open each Saturday 1-7 p.m. with activities ranging for all ages and skillset levels.

“We teach them how to use the equipment on the ground before we go up in the air and then all of my staff are there to facilitate that experience,” says Wiberg.

Individuals and families can reserve 2-hour time slots participating in activities 30 feet off the ground.

“It’s pretty obvious at times when you see people, just by looking into their eyes, of where they’re at,” laughs Wiberg. “But my staff does a really nice job of making people feel very comfortable and safe while they’re going through their experience.”

Al Wiberg, Assistant Director of Operations Recreation and Sport Operations at the university joins Hello Wisconsin Wednesday to show us the ropes.
