Bear House Mountain Guiding is teaming up with the Outdoor Women’s Alliance to provide this women’s only Introduction to backcountry ski travel!
We will teach you how to set a proper skin track, execute a stellar kick turn, and find the soft pow. The instructor will provide feedback on backcountry skiing/snowboarding technique and give advice for future trip planning.There will be a basic overview of avalanches and how to avoid them, but we do recommend taking a full AIARE Level 1 course to continue your mountain education.
Location: The Cottonwoods, Salt Lake City, Utah
Instructor: Jackie Long
Gear: Skiers and splitboarders are welcome. Participants are expected to provide their own ski/snowboard gear, including a helmet. BHMG can provide recommendations of local outfitters for rentals. Participants will be required to have a beacon, probe, and shovel, which BHMG can provide if needed.
