• Is there anything in the mountains that provides more pure fun and joy than getting fresh tracks on deep, soft, powder? We don't think so! Our backcountry skiing program is all about giving you the best possible chance of shredding the pow, whether that's on a camp itself, or giving you the skills to do it independently and safely afterwards. And with our hugely popular on-staff ski guide Doug Latimer, we've got the knowledge and expertise to make it happen. 

Intro to Backcountry Skiing & Splitboarding (Introductory)
