Learn to Cross-Country Ski in the Backcountry!

Experience Colorado's finest snow, away from the crowds and expensive lift tickets! Learn to cross-country ski and get prepared to ski backcountry trails using classic Nordic-style technique. (No AT or Tele gear allowed in this school.) We can accommodate students ranging from never-evers to folks who have skied for years and just want to fine tune their skills.  We’ve got a class that is right for you!  Classes are small, often less than ten students, with at least two instructors.  Just ask around - your fellow CMC members are our best marketing tools!

There is also an advanced class offered again this year. Click here to for more information and to register for the ADVANCED Backcountry Ski Touring School. 


Note: this class is limited to CMC members only.

Tuition: $105 for CMC members - $95 for trip leaders. Tuition includes the lecture, 2 days of lessons, an optional field day, a trail pass for the first on-snow day and a lift ticket for the second on-snow day.

Trip Leaders may apply the SALT scholarship for BSTS.

Please note that if you miss a class, you may not be allowed to continue. Each class builds on the skills and techniques learned in the previous class. So put the dates on your calendar and try not to schedule over them. Refunds will not be given for missed classes.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
