So you have taken the introduction to backcountry skiing and you have been out for the past few winters honing your skills. Where do you go next? Have you thought about kicking and gliding into a bowl then playing around there or skiing to a hut to play for several days? Have you thought your entry level skills were too low to attempt such a task? This class will pickup where the Introduction to Backcountry Skiing class left off. There will be one classroom session to discuss more advanced types of gear and technique and what you can do with those skills. There will be two field sessions to practice more advanced types of ascent and descent while maintaining control. The cost for this class is $45 plus gear rental if you don’t already own the gear. The classroom date is 6 Mar from 6:00p to 9:30p. The first field session is on 9 Mar all day and the second field session is on 16 Mar all day. All field sessions are scheduled as CMC trips. A general fitness level to go on a full day ski trip is required for the field sessions.
There is a $10 cancellation fee.
No Shows will not be refunded.
