Description:

Interested in learning how to self-propel yourself successfully into the great backcountry of the coast ranges?

Ski touring is an exciting way to get yourself to distant places and mountain peaks, with rewarding views, good company, and the requisite of having to "earn your turns".

The VOC is running a ski touring info night, where some experienced members of the club will go over basics such as what to bring on overnight ski tours, how to pack well, tips and tricks for skinning, and a basic rundown of what to expect as you embark on your first ski touring trip. 

This information session is aimed at beginners, but experienced skiers may find some useful tips in the presentation - and are welcome to join in and share their pro tips!

This info night does not replace any avalanche safety training course, and should be seen as a basic introduction to the theory and esthetics of ski touring. The goal of this info night is to share knowledge, and the stoke of skiing! Hope to see you there

 

Date and Time: Thursday, October 29th, 7pm

Location: VOC Clubroom in the basement of the Nest
