Half Day Ski and/or Snowboard Adventure

This is for you if you are new to this way of exploring the backcountry beyond the ski area boundary. The terrain we choose is generally low angle, so avalanche hazard isn't an issue. The length of the runs are shorter than with a full day, so your fitness need only be moderate. This trip is for the intermediate skier or snowboarder. Start time is 9am, finish time is 1.30pm.

What we Provide

  • skis, skins, ski crampons, snowshoes, poles
  • a shovel, probe and avalanche transceiver, and a day pack if need be. 
  • transport and lift passes if necessary.

What to Bring?

  • your snowboard
