This venue hosts a wide variety of ski and snowboard terrain for the intermediate to advanced backcountry enthusiast.

Whatever the chosen accommodation, this trip is sure to include skill development in the following areas: avalanche terrain awareness, route finding, group management in the backcountry, transceiver use, and skiing in a variety of snow conditions.
This trip is recommended for those with strong intermediate to advanced resort ski/snowboard abilities, as well as four season camping skills. The expedition’s final objectives will be established after the make-up of the members has been determined.
