Participant Information

If you are an intermediate skier who can ski 'blue' (intermediate) runs in bound  and want to progress into backcountry skiing, this course is for you! The objective of this course is to take people who can already do parallel turns, and help them progress with specific skill building and training tips so that they can access the backcountry in the near future.


Experience Level: It is expected that all participants on this course are able to link parallel turns. Participants will have to be comfortable with blue runs.


Instructor: Momo will take 6 people. 


Ski Resort:  at Cypress before the gate entrance on Thursday February 27 at 6 pm


What to bring and expect: All personal skiing gear must be arranged ahead of time by yourself. We will not wait for people to arrange rentals. Participants are expected to have everything they need for a 6 pm, so we can promptly get skiing. While the aim of this course is to help people ski in the backcountry, no backcountry safety or instruction will be covered. The focus is purely ski technique.

The plan is to ski Thursday night from 6:00-9:00pm. We can meet up at 6:00pm and do some warm up run, and start the training from 7:00-9:00pm.

Helmet is required to participate in this course.
