Taking a different approach on this seasons Backcountry Skiing beacon practice. This will be an actual ski tour. We will ski a few miles into a select location as a large group where we will discuss technique and practice beacon search and rescue. We will then break into up to four different tours where experience leaders will take participants into avalanche terrain to discuss safe travel techniques, and terrain issues relating to avalanches. We will also get a few laps in for the fun of it. This is not a beginners tour, you will need to be able to ski moderate backcountry terrain with mixed snow conditions, be familiar with the usage of your equipment and be have a beacon shovel and probe.
