Skiing and snowboarding in the backcountry is much safer and much more fun when you have an understanding of avalanches. Knowing when you can go big and knowing when you need to dial it back. Nobody wants to be that partner that can't make informed decisions or be counted on during a rescue. Spend an evening in the classroom and a day on the snow with the pros to learn how to get out in the backcountry, have fun and come home ready to do it again. Each one of our Backcountry 101 course is lead by a U.A.C avalanche forecaster.
