The goal of this event is to prepare skiers with no backcountry experience to go on beginner friendly backcountry ski-trips. The rough plan of the day is skin up to Brockton point, do a few things as time permits, and then ski back down to the parking lot.
Topics we may cover include:
- How touring equipment works
- Efficient skinning technique/skinning uphill
- Efficient transitions
- Self-reliance/safety issues in the backcountry
We won’t spend much time actually skiing downhill, but ability to ski blue runs within the resorts is required.
sign-ups are no longer available for this event.
