Introduction to Backcountry Basics
February 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
- Skill Level: Beginner
- Event Type: Adventure, Touring
About the event: Ever thought about ski-touring but have no idea where to begin? Did you just buy your first backcountry ski set-up and you are unsure how to use the equipment? You notice the GH Haus Quiver has backcountry gear available but you are hesitant to try it ? This is the perfect event for you! Join Cynthia Johnson for an apres afternoon at Meadow Mountain. We will be starting from square one (this event is intended for those who are truly beginners); learning how the gear functions and some basic backcountry awareness information and etiquette. We will go for a short ski tour (2-4 miles MAX) and finish the day with tailgating apres in the parking lot.*
- What to Bring? Make sure to bring your own backcountry gear setup (or reserve gear from Haus Quiver), wear lots of layers, bring a backpack, poles, backcountry skis, skins, boots and plenty of water!
