Rmg & Breck Rec Backcountry Basics
Curious to know what it takes to ski the backcountry? Backcountry Basics is for you! Once a month we venture into the backcountry with our newest introductory course to ski mountaineering taught by an IFMGA guide. Learn about snow conditions, how to use a shovel, beacon and probe, and setting up your alpine touring equipment. We also coves avalanche awareness, route planning, uphill travel and ski technique for a safe descent.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE NEEDED, however we DO require that you have the stamina to go uphill at elevation for at least an hour and highly recommend that you have completed the RMG Companion Rescue Clinic.
