Backcountry Skiing & Splitboarding Clinics
Utah Mountain Adventures
January 5-9, 2014
"The trip had started atop the Supreme chairlift at Alta, and by day's end we had made the first (and only) tracks down two bowls, climbed the East Ridge of Tuscarora Mountain, dabbled in Wolverine cirque, and descended Patsy Marley. What a way to exercise, ski, experience wilderness, and meet new friends." David Arnold, Mass.
Join guides from Utah Mountain Adventures for a 3-day/4-night Backcountry Clinic Package. Safe travel while skiing and snowboarding in the backcountry is a must and this three-day course teaches skiers and snowboarders the fundamentals during three full days of backcountry skiing and snowboarding. The course teaches avalanche awareness, beacon rescue, safe route selection, efficient uphill travel with climbing skins on skis and split snowboards, and downhill skiing and snowboarding technique, while experiencing legendary Wasatch backcountry touring. Participants will enjoy the warmth, convenience, and fine dining at the Alta Lodge after each day in the backcountry. Must be at least age 14 to participate. Guide to client ratio is 1:3. Equipment is available for rent.* Participants may want to come a day or two early to ski at Alta to acclimate before the
three-day clinic begins.
