So what are some of the things you can learn with us on this backcountry skiing in Tahoe intro? There are many things to consider on a backcountry skiing trip. Because you will be skiing outside established ski routes you need to learn about terrain, weather and safety techniques. Some of the topics we cover include avalanche safety, route finding, skinning technique, and rope work and rescue. Did you know for example that Eskimos have 50 different words for snow? This is because not all snow is the same: sometimes it can be more powdery, other times more creamy. Knowing how to identify the different types will be one of the aspects that will help you make decisions regarding routes and skiing techniques.
