Backcountry Skiing

February 21, 2014 - 3:00 pm

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.
