Prerequisite: Skiers or snowboarders should be comfortable on intermediate to advanced terrain. APU can provide avalanche equipment, but participants will need to bring their own splitboard or alpine touring ski set up.
Details: We will be meeting at 9 am in the equipment rental room of the Atwood Basement. We will go over how to check the forecast and find an appropriate location based on conditions, cover basic equipment, and do a gear check before we drive to the snowboard area. Once we arrive at the skiing location, we will cover skinning, or walking with snowshoes and talk about backcountry travel in avalanche zones. Assessing terrain (red flags, glide cracks, pit test (CT & ECT), avalanche rescue (single, team, multi-burial).
