If you ride blues and blacks at your local resort, and if you think you’re ready for steeper and more technical terrain, this clinic is for you.
You will spend 1 day on Snow King Mountain, also know as the “Town Hill” in Jackson. The accessibility and high concentration of expert terrain make this a perfect venue for steep snowboarding skills, efficient touring techniques, introduction to technical rope work, and rappelling.
The skills you practice will then be put to the test for the next 2 days while we venture up in the high peaks of the Tetons.
The list of topics and skills covered includes: Gear selection, introduction to technical rope work, use of an ice axe and crampons, steep snowboarding techniques, partner communication, terrain assessment and hazard evaluation.
