Essentials for Backcountry Skiing

Thursday, November 2nd @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Transitioning from alpine skiing to the backcountry can be a rewarding but daunting endeavor. To help with the gear learning curve, Pine Mountain Sports is hosting an evening with SCARPA & G3 Genuine Guide Gear to delve into the equipment required to transition from inbounds skiing and into the backcountry.

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 Volunteers in Medicine Clinic of the Cascades-VIM . 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

Event is free and refreshments will be provided!

Doors: 7P
Presentation: 7:30P

Space is limited, so call the shop to RSVP. 541-385-8080.

*This event will be largely focused on the gear required and not around avalanche and snow condition awareness. Check the NWAC or the Central Oregon Avalanche Association website (coavalanche.org) to find out more information on avalanche safety.
