This course teaches a solid foundation of efficient uphill and downhill travels skills. The course is taught at Hidden Valley, a former ski resort in Rocky Mountain National Park that shuttered in 1991. This trailhead allows us to utilize quick access to uphill routes and off piste slopes for downhill skills coaching. Our AMGA trained/certified instructors can kick start your backcountry skiing/riding ambitions! The curriculum covered includes equipment considerations, basic functions of avalanche rescue equipment, proper use and care of skins, appropriate and efficient uphill travel, efficient transitions, layering, route finding, track setting, and more!
