Transitioning from alpine skiing to the backcountry can be a rewarding but daunting endeavor. To help with the gear learning curve, The Base Camp is hosting an evening with SCARPA and G3 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 the Gallatin Avalanche Information Center. It’s a great chance to bid on some sweet outdoor gear from brands like SCARPA, MSR and Therm-A-Rest.
Event is free and refreshments will be provided.
Presentation starts at 6:00pm
*This event will be largely focused on the gear required and not around avalanche and snow condition awareness. Check the GAIC website to find out more information on avalanche safety.
|Reservations:||Open for everyone interested in learning about exploring the winter backcountry!|
