3-DAY CAMP: Basic Backcountry Skills Camp
Learn the skills necessary for backcountry skiing and snowboarding. Our backcountry yurt headquarters makes our skills camp a unique and fun backcountry adventure! Camp is limited to six clients with two guides ensuring plenty of individualized attention.
Backcountry Skills Camp will focus on route-finding and navigation skills, snow stability, weather, rescue, what to carry in your pack, nutrition, and powder skiing technique. Participants must be in good physical and cardiovascular condition, have solid downhill ability, and be able to hike and ski four to five miles in a day. No backcountry experience or avalanche education is necessary.
Learn how to use climbing skins, gain tips for efficient uphill travel techniques, and improve your technique descending powder and variable terrain. Participants will also learn how to make a tour plan, and how to use an avalanche transceiver and other rescue items.
