New for 2017! 

A breakout session designed specifically for sledders by sledders, to address the unique needs and considerations of motorized users in the backcountry. This will help set the stage for future snowmobile and snowbike workshops. You’ll learn from avalanche experts and fellow riders, and brush up your skills before the start of the season. 

The morning sled specific breakout session (from 8:00-9:40) is free due to the generous support from the Utah Snowmobile Association! â€‹Please join us for a breakout session on the unique needs and considerations of motorized users in the backcountry.
