October 17, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Doors open: 6:00 PM
Presentation starts: 6:15 PM
Topics to be covered:
• Traditional alpine skis VS backcountry skis
• Different boot options available
• Choosing the proper skins
• Basic safety tools required
All participants will go home with a free G3 ski strap, a key piece to your backcountry gear kit!
There will also be a silent auction benefitting El Sendero Backcountry Ski and Snowshoe Club. It’s a great chance to bid on some sweet outdoor gear from brands like SCARPA, MSR – Mountain Safety Research, Therm-a-Rest and Osprey Packs
This event will be largely focused on the gear required and not around avalanche and snow condition awareness. Check the NWAC or local avalanche website to find out more information on avalanche safety.
