This is a perfect follow up application tour to do after our Sugar Bowl Backcountry, Intro to Backcountry Skiing or for anyone with previous backcountry touring experience. It provides more application of skills with refinement through tips and coaching. We keep a more consistent pace and climb higher and farther with more ski descents than our "Intro" day.

We continue important practice with our avalanche safety skills.

Skills covered will include:
  • Group assesment
  • Pre-tour planning
  • Developing a safety plan
  • Transceiver, probe and shovel review
  • Hazards assessment
  • Uphill and downhill ski coaching
  • Time management on a tour
  • Reviewing group dynamics
  • Avoiding heuristic traps in the backcountry
  • Skiing as an efficient team with a guide
Cost: $165
