Intro to Backcountry Skiing - Live Online

with Dr. Roger Zimmerman


In the backcountry we don't ski on a prepared alpine slope or on the prepared tracks of a cross-country ski center. Instead we enjoy a winter day on a snow-covered hiking trail, on a farmer’s field, in a deep valley, in the woods filled with the tracks of wildlife or for a more challenging excursion; on a wild mountain bowl!

Learn what you need for equipment, fitness requirements and if you’ve got what it takes to hit the backcountry! Registration closes at noon on 2/1.
