Backcountry Boot Camp December 28-31

Backcountry Boot Camp December 27-30, 2021


An intensive and rigorous course of training that helps people become much better at doing something in a short period of time. 

This experiential, four-day camp is perfect for the upper-intermediate to advanced skier who is interested in expanding their skiing possibilities and venturing out-of-ski-area boundaries.

During this course skiers are taught essential backcountry basics from trained, experienced MWSC coaches and local professionals.
