December Backcountry Newsletter

The JHSC 4 Month Backcountry Program, and Mini Mountaineers are ready and excited for another great season!  Well kick off on December 7th, for the 4 Month Program. Mini Mountaineers begin early February.  Our athletes will be training all season long, learning the ins and outs of backcountry skiing.  We will cover avalanche mechanics, route finding, trip planning, first aid, rescue, winter preparedness, group decision making, technical skills, and more.   All while having a great time, forming lasting connections with teammates and coaches, and hopefully skiing some deep powder like in this picture from last February!

There are still a couple of spots left in our "Mini Mountaineers" program!  A low commitment entry level program designed for ages 10 -13, 6 weeks from Feb through March with rental gear available.
