Beginner backcountry ski day
I am organizing a beginner backcountry ski day at Kootenay pass this Sunday, January 12. (Destination details to be confirmed: I might change it if conditions are not favourable up there)
Lunch out in the field or at the cabin. Max: 10 participants; We offer 2 guides for this trip; so 5 skiers per guide. We will use radios to communicate between the two groups.
- Backcountry skis with alpine touring (AT) bindings only (NO split snow board)
- Compatible boots
- Climbing skins
- Ski poles
- Beacon (check the batteries!)
- Backpack, lunch, layered clothing etc. (check the temperature at the Kootenay pass summit beforehand)
Please let me know if you want to join and include your skiing experience. This is NOT a learn-to-ski day.
