This is to introduce skiers/boarders to backcountry; those want to try and/or want some additional experience. Backcountry skiing/boarding is very expensive. Can try the slope skiing to see if you like before spending a lot in avalanche teaining, skis, etc.

We will discuss gear and costs.

We will see some avalanche tracks, at a distance.

Relaxed day. Skiers must know how to snowplow; want strong novice participants. We stay on gentle slopes.

After this can take AST courses and BIT programs.

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Rocky Mountain Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
