Cancelled: Join us for the Women of Winter Backcountry Clinic
JOIN US FOR THE WOMEN OF WINTER BACKCOUNTRY CLINIC
[UPDATE] By Sunny Fenton, Seattle, WA: The Women of Winter Backcountry Clinic has been cancelled due to lack of interest and snow. Thank you for your interest. Please check back in with us next Spring for details of the Women of Winter 2016 program.
We’re excited to partner with Crystal Mountain for the 5th year in a row to offer the Women Of Winter Backcountry Clinic.
We’ll start out with an evening classroom session at the evo store in Seattle on Stone Way on Wednesday, March 25th. Pick up your goodie bag, demo gear if you need it. There will be an airbag demonstration, discussion about backcountry safety with a top Crystal Mountain Pro Patrol and light appetizers to keep you fueled.
On Saturday, March 28th 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 recapping the day’s adventures at the base of Crystal.
AT skiers, telemarkers and splitboarders are all welcome. Must have advanced skiing or riding ability for traveling in the backcountry.
We still have a few ski and splitboard demos available, which you can sign up for.
$85 for both days (submit this form and it will redirect you to a payment page)
$25 to demo gear (we will contact you for payment)
$10 one ride ticket at Crystal
There is limited demo gear available. When it’s gone, it’s gone. If you are able to borrow or have your own gear please do and allow those who need gear access.
March 25th – Classroom Session at evo 6:30 pm (you will need to arrive early, 5 pm, if you need demo gear)
March 28th – On Hill @ Crystal Mountain (meeting time will be announced Thursday night)
