BC 101: Begin To Skin, In-Store Clinic

Tuesday, December 6th @ 7:00 pm

| Free

Ready to skip the lift lines and start earning your turns? A backcountry ski or splitboard lets you make tracks uphill as well as down.

This clinic is tailored to backcountry beginners. We’ll discuss equipment basics from Backcountry Nordic, to 3-Pin, to Telemark, to Alpine Touring – as well as how to use climbing skins. We’ll share clothing secrets to keep you cool when climbing and warm when descending, and examine ways to efficiently pack your gear.

Learn why having fun and being smart in the backcountry goes hand in hand with your awareness of snow safety.

RSVP required as space is limited to 25. Call 541-385-8080 to RSVP.

 

*This event will be largely focused on the gear required and not around avalanche and snow condition awareness. Check the Central Oregon Avalanche Association website (coavalanche.org) to find out more information on avalanche safety. We recommend their Know Before You Go presentations as a first step to being avalanche aware.
