Join evo and Crystal Mountain for an all ladies backcountry clinic! Sign up right here> !

We’re excited to partner with Crystal Mountain for the 4th year in a row to offer the Women Of Winter Backcountry Clinic.

We’ll start out with an evening classroom session at evo in Seattle (located on Stone Way) Thursday, April 10th. Pick up your goodie bag and demo gear if you need it. There will be an ABS airbag demonstration and discussion about backcountry safety with a top Crystal Mountain Pro Patroller while indulging in light apps.

On Saturday, April 12th we will begin with a quick meet up at Crystal Mountain before breaking into groups. Conditions will dictate where the day takes us, but be assured that you will get time to practice with your beacon, probe and shovel, tour Crystal’s amazing backcountry and connect with other rad women. We will end by recapping the day’s adventures at the base of Crystal.

Who?
AT skiers, telemarkers and splitboarders are all welcome. Must have advanced skiing or riding ability for traveling in the backcountry.

Demos
We still have a few ski demos available, which you can sign up for by checking the box below. Unfortunately we have run out of split board demos, but there are a few places nearby that rent touring gear. Let us know if you would like their contact information.

Pricing
$85 for both days (submit this form and it will redirect you to a payment page)
$25 to demo gear (info on sign up sheet, we will contact you for payment)

There is limited demo gear available. When it’s gone it’s gone, so if you are able to borrow or if you have your own gear, please bring it and allow those who need gear to access the demos.
