Essentials for Backcountry Skiing

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017 @ 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 ( to find out more information on avalanche safety.
