alpine ski tour break into the backcountry - mill d

Try out this beginner ski program with veteran Pete Mimmack. Theses trips are structured to provide a slower pace and help participants learn backcountry skills. Some knowledge of your gear and ascending/descending skill on your skis is required. Plan to have standard backcountry gear - skins, shovel, beacon, probe (optional) along with you typical skis/splitboard, food, water, clothing etc. E-mail Pete to "KNOW BEFORE YOU GO" and make sure to bring your 10 Es! Check with the Utah Avalanche center web site for snow conditions and weather forecast https://www.avalanche.org and review the WMC Winter Sports Policy, Backcountry Travel Techniques and Backcountry Ski & Snowshoe Route Ratings listed on the Wasatch Mountain Club website under Winter Sports www.wasatchmountainclub.org. Organizers are expected to keep their groups together and use proper backcountry etiquette. Pre-register at pmimmack@googlemail.com. Act now, spots will go fast!
