Chicks: Intro to Backcountry Skiing Skills

Join Chicks and the Silverton Avalanche School on Red Mountain Pass for our 3 day Intro to Backcountry Skiing and Riding Hut Clinic. We will spend two nights at the easily accessible Mountain Belle Hut. Under the guidance of an IFMGA/AMGA guide, PSIA and Avalanche Instructor you’ll learn the ups and downs of backcountry skiing in a setting that is perfect for anyone that can ski blue runs on-piste The terrain we use is moderate but fun and includes both alpine slopes above treeline with open glades and moderate tree skiing below. For women interested in taking a Level 1 avalanche course this clinic is the the perfect warm-up. We’ll discuss how to find and interpret an avalanche forecast, the basics of using avalanche rescue equipment as well as how perform daily transceiver checks and carry out a basic companion rescue.

This clinic is ideal for women who love to ski, are curious about venturing into the backcountry and want to get a feel for it in a supportive, fun environment. The Mountain Belle is a comfortable backcountry ski hut with great lighting and views, a wood burning stove, BBQ grill on the deck and all the essentials to kick back after a day out in the mountains. This is for Women only.

I soooooooooo want to do this.
