alpine ski tour break into the backcountry - mill d - January 7, 2007

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 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 Organizers are expected to keep their groups together and use proper backcountry etiquette. Pre-register at Act now, spots will go fast!
