We will teach through doing to promote growth and understanding in backcountry skiing and mountain travel. We will coach you in the physical skills of moving through big mountain terrain on skis. We’ll teach you to use tools such as ropes and other technical gear to help you venture into more complex terrain. We will also cover the cerebral aspects such as decision making, forecasting and route planning.
You’ll still be required to put in the work, but we’ll help bridge the gap between challenge and risk. The ultimate goal is for our mentee’s to walk away more prepared to plan their own adventures while making well informed and calculated decisions.
We will meet once a week on Tuesdays for 4 weeks as we work through a progression of skills and learning. These groups of no more than 4 people participants will need to be solid skiers and must have completed a level 1 avalanche course. This high bar is necessary so that we can teach the higher-level skills in more diverse terrain than we otherwise could.
The hope is to have 4 people per session. We will run these Tuesday sessions all season. Each month conditions change, sign up for multiple sessions and the progression will continue as you move into different roles within your own personal progression, while getting into more and more terrain.
Price: $1000 per person for 4 Tuesdays. Sign up for a second session get $100 off.
