This course, offered seven days per week, is for skiers and snowboarders looking for an introduction to the world of backcountry skiing in the White Mountains. We’re lucky to have some of the best backcountry ski terrain in the Northeast. This course is typically conducted in Tuckerman Ravine or the Gulf of Slides on Mount Washington.
Your day will start with an orientation and gear check. The gear check includes the issuance of avalanche beacons, shovels and probes, and you will be given an orientation on their operation and use. Last but not least, we will review the latest Mount Washington Avalanche Center avalanche advisory and Mount Washington Observatory forecast before heading out.
This course is available as a private, pre-existing group, or via our Flexible Booking option (we’ll try to match you with other skiers/boarders).
