Backcountry January Newsletter

Mid December marked the start of on snow training for the 4 Month Backcountry program.  Throughout the season this team will be climbing up Snow King after school on both Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Participants will also receive avalanche, and first aid training while ski touring in Grand Teton National Park and Teton Pass on weekends.  We have some pretty cool trips lined up this year too: We are heading to Montana for a hut trip in January, ski mountaineering race in the Wasatch in March, and a couple of the older athletes will be traveling to Rogers Pass, BC over spring break.

For the younger kids (10 - 12) we have the Mini Mountaineers program starting up in early February.  This program is a great intro to the sport and we even have a full fleet of rental equipment from Dynafit for the kids.  Get in touch if you would like to be a part of this!

You can expect monthly updates and pictures in this newsletter from coaches and athletes throughout the season.  It will be a great way to stay connected and see what is happening over here in the Backcountry community.  

Here is a photo of part of our 4 Month team on a cold Tuesday night near the top of Snow King mountain.
