EXPERIENCE

Spend the day touring in the backcountry

Our Backcountry 101 clinic is a full day experience, designed to build a solid foundation of winter backcountry skills. Our knowledgeable guide and instructor will be your mentor for the day, passing on tips, tricks and detailed information that will help you get more comfortable in the backcountry.

This is not an avalanche course, but a complement to one. Backcountry 101 will focus more on the the techniques and tricks for maximizing your gear, the ski-to-skin transition, uphill hiking strategies, and more. Our goal is to help you skip the ‘school of hard knocks’ by giving you plenty of tips to plan and execute your own safe, backcountry ski tour.
