Do you have experience in the backcountry, but looking for guidance on trip planning and choosing the right terrain? Maybe you want to find a crew of like-minded women who are craving some outdoor space. Come join VNTRbirds for our Intermediate Backcountry Tour and enjoy a day on the skin track.
For this tour you should be familiar with your backcountry gear and equipment (including AT skis or splitboard, beacon, shovel and probe). You should have some experience riding in the backcountry (1-5 days or more). We will be making group decisions while trip planning, looking at snow conditions and assessing route selections. As a group we will also be riding different terrain, assessing risk management and how many laps to take. Should have the physical fitness to take multiple laps.
