Backcountry Skiing

February 21, 2014

Backcountry skiing opens more of Alaska to access by muscles alone than any other sport, and can take you to the most awesome and fearsome spots, too, for self-reliant adventure. But it’s complicated. We’ll learn about the several kinds of backcountry skis and techniques — telemark, randonee, touring — what each is best for, and the most reasonable route to find your way into the sport.
