• Is there anything in the mountains which 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. 

Level 1 - Intro to Backcountry Skiing & Splitboarding

Eyeing the untracked powder beyond the resort boundary but not sure how to transition to the backcountry safely and responsibly? Our entry level ski & splitboard course is designed for you! Whether it's deciding where to ride, assessing the snowpack or understanding the gear, our highly trained and experienced ACMG guides will show you the way and a free copy of the ACC's Winter Backcountry Leader Manual will provide valuable reference material once you're ready to go it alone.

As well as our regular course dates, we offer a women's-only edition for those looking for an all-female learning environment. And we also offer splitboard-specific editions which are taught by splitboarding guru Chucky Gerrard.

Dates: 5 different dates available.
Price: $250
