Beginner - Intermediate
This camp is designed for those who recently took up backcountry skiing (or took a break), but it is not designed for complete beginners. You must have completed an AST1, have basic familiarity with your gear and completed 5+ days skiing with a group of your peers and/or taken an Introduction to Backcountry Skiing program through the ACC, or equivalent. An intermediate level of ski experience at a resort is also essential: you must be comfortable on ungroomed blue runs at a mountain resort.
You will spend almost all day outside (up to 8 hours), sometimes stopping for discussion or breaks. Come prepared for cold weather with warm layers and please ensure you have everything on the gear list. A good level of cardiovascular fitness is also key to allow for access and learning.
If you have any questions about your suitability for this course, please contact the office.
