alpine ski tour - telemark/at/snowboard - February 1, 2012
Introductory to Backcountry skiing in the Wasatch. To participate you will need to have skied the backcountry before, be familiar with your equipment and able handle yourself in challenging snow conditions. We start with less demanding tours (MOD-), advancing into more challenging (MOD+) situations. You must have a beacon, snow shovel, skins & eventually a probe. On every tour we will practice safe travel, you will learn, if you don't already, how to use your equipment and you will be drilled on your knowledge of snow conditions. Three pin telemark, BC and AT gear are the expected gear (If you ski 3 pins bindings or free-heel, you must be able to "link turns"). Destination will depend on participants, weather & snow conditions. Call or e-mail for meeting time & location.
