Another day stuck in traffic, long lift lines, paying for expensive tickets and no fresh tracks have you eying the untracked lines of the backcountry? Experience the thrill of fresh tracks after skinning through beautiful uncrowded terrain away from the resorts. We understand why you want and need these new skills because, years ago we too felt the pull of the mountains and powder stashes beyond the boundaries of resorts. You will learn the basics of skinning technique, care and use of skins, transceiver check (group/independent), kick turns, terrain management up hill & downhill, simple & in depth transceiver search, and how to find great skiing!
