The course will focus on the following skill sets:
- Track setting and uphill navigation

- Tour planning techniques
- Backcountry Rescue
- What to carry in your pack for touring
- Efficient transitions
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.
