Ski Touring & Snow Safety Course—Beginner
Hosted by Wy’east Wolfpack and Kaf Adventures
Come learn how to do something awesome, that will bring much joy into your life :)
Seriously, ski touring and traveling efficiently—and safely!—in the mountains in winter is a truly wonderful thing and a great way to stay active, fit, and feeling good. Also, it’s a great thing to do with friends…and here in Portland we have a pretty great local resource for it, the great Wy’east (Mt. Hood). Join us and the experienced guides at Kaf Adventures for this custom-tailored course!
Course provides expert instruction (5:1 participant to guide ratio) covering the basics of ski touring and snow safety (avalanche awareness, terrain selection, etc.) over three half-day+ sessions over three separate weekends in winter: Jan 26-27, Feb 16-17, and March 9-10. Participants pick either Saturdays or Sundays, 10 spots available for each.
- 8 am to 1 pm, Saturdays or Sundays
- Meeting location on Mt. Hood TBA
- Gear rental discounts at Mountain Shop for all participants (all season long!)
