Skiers and riders are expected to bring their own touring gear and the knowledge to use it.

Avalanche safety gear available for Rent.

Backcountry Basics

This one day clinic is ideal for skiers and riders who are looking to duck the rope into the backcountry. It is designed for folks who have already had or are planning to take a Level 1 Avalanche course.

Students will be introduced to skills needed to be a confident, efficient, and well informed backcountry partner.

The topics we'll cover include packing, layering, pacing, navigation tools, emergency planning, safe decision making, and much more. This is not a substitute for avalanche certification but compliments the skills and knowledge you will gain in a Level 1 Avalanche course.

Only 4 spots available per day!
