Beginner Backcountry Ski Tour -at 5 PM – 7 PM, Breckenridge, Colorado
This is a 1.5-day workshop that will get you off the lifts and into the backcountry! Learn to use your Alpine Touring or Splitboard set-up with professional, qualified guides. We’ll give you the basics of winter backcountry travel and safety. We will explain the gear and tools you need, how to plan for a trip, and how to recognize avalanche terrain. This course is an excellent precursor to taking your AIARE avalanche level 1 course. Meet other women who are getting into the backcountry too!
The first evening we’ll introduce all the gear, how to pack and plan for the backcountry, and provide an introduction to avalanche safety. The second day we cover more avalanche awareness and rescue techniques. Then we will practice those skills on an all-day field tour in the backcountry. You’ll have all the tools you need to get into the backcountry — the next step is to take your AIARE level 1.
Our Backcountry Babes instructors have years of backcountry skiing experience, ranging from professional ski patrollers, AIARE avalanche course instructors, cat ski guides, PSIA ski instructors and avalanche forecasters. We love teaching Backcountry Babes courses so we can help get more women skiing in the backcountry in a supportive, fun, and compassionate learning environment. Fore more details & tickets:
