Are you a resort skier looking to get outside the boundaries? Using a combination of field-based learning and indoor presentations, we’ll cover trip planning, avalanche safety and companion rescue, backcountry equipment use and repair, as well as uphill and downhill ski/travel techniques.
The Williams Peak Hut in the heart of the Sawtooth Range provides an ideal venue for this course. Inspired by the stunning backdrop, you can explore a variety of ski terrain while learning backcountry ski skills and techniques from instructors who are passionate about the sport. While learning and skill development are the theme of the course, we won’t forget to have fun, ski powder, and soak in the spectacular alpine ambiance of the snow-covered Sawtooths!
