Washington Pass/North Cascades

Experience NCMG's Women's Backcountry Series this winter! Here are the details:

Two Day Backcountry Clinic: This 2-day intensive course will immerse you in planning and touring based out of the NCMG headquarters in Mazama and snowmobile-accessed touring at Washington Pass. We will spend day 1 covering the basics of tour planning, avalanche safety, and decision making, as well as taking a brief tour to practice essential backcountry movement and uphill skinning techniques. Day 2 will be a full day of ski touring where we will get to apply the skills of the previous day up in beautiful Washington Pass. An advanced level of skiing or snowboarding in resort is highly recommended to maximize the learning goals of this course.

Course fee includes includes snowmobile rental, use of avalanche safety equipment, and experienced guide.

Confidence skiing/riding in advanced terrain (similar to black diamond runs at the ski area) on open slopes or in trees in all types of conditions: deep powder, firm snow, punchy, crusty, anything a PNW winter storm can deliver!
