Aspen is synonymous with skiing and ski culture, so it makes sense that it boasts world class snow conditions and a community dedicated to providing top notch results.

We will focus on the fundamentals of backcountry, including what gear to use and how to use it, safety protocol and avalanche gear, route planning and management, and so much more. You can expect to pick up techniques that will help you travel through the backcountry and how to transition to and from touring mode.

You should be in good shape and be an intermediate to advanced skier or snowboarder. Being comfortable and confident in the backcountry is vital to your success and that of the program. If you have been dominating the resort runs and are ready for the next challenge, then this is the trip for you.

Prepare yourself to properly and efficiently move into exhilarating new terrain by booking this one day intro to backcountry skiing and snowboarding program NOW and experience the pinnacle of snow sports in the Colorado Rockies and the gorgeous mecca of Aspen!
