Looking for a last minute gift? Who wouldn't want a UAC logo tshirt, cap, or mug or a Wasatch Backcountry Ski Map? Or the gift of knowledge - an Avalanche Class
Some of the best lines are where most skiers don't go. The reason? They're steep and can be hard to get to!
Challenging terrain requires solid skills and confidence to ski safely. Ben Clark will be leading a group of 6 to learn techniques and tricks for safely and confidently navigating steep lines, tight trees, exposed entrances, and remote locations, all in a controlled environment.
You will need a lift ticket (not provided). Bring your avalanche beacon, probe, and shovel. You must have the fitness and skiing ability to climb and descend in steep, ungroomed terrain and should feel ok skiing black diamond runs in ungroomed conditions. This clinic is for skiers only.
This clinic will be held in the backcountry regardless of weather, so come prepared to stay out all morning.
Registration will be open to participants at the Utah Avalanche Center booth at VertFest.
Plan to arrive and check in by 12:45 pm. We will meet and head out at 1:00 pm.
