Participant Information

An amazing area that gets little usage from the backcountry skiers, mostly because is full of snowmobiles during mid Winter.

Don't expect much in terms of downhill skiing. Mostly is to test your gear and get your fitness level up.

Please be considerate and do NOT sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are at least an intermediate skier(can do black runs in any conditions, including trees) in the Backcountry. If in doubt about your capabilities send me a message and we can talk about it:) 

Will be moving at moderate pace.
