Friends don’t let friends teach each other how to backcountry ski because it’s an environment that can be unforgiving to the school of Knox style. We believe formal education is essential to build a responsible and safer backcountry community. One of our AMGA-trained guides is eager to teach you the necessary skills to prepare, plan, and execute a backcountry tour. These skills are taught in our Backcountry Series Courses and will set you up for memorable days in the backcountry while managing risk.
The Backcountry Series includes 3 courses Backcountry 1.0, Backcountry 2.0, and Backcountry 3.0. The course structure allows new and experienced riders to further their education and skills in a backcountry setting. If it’s your first time in the backcountry then Backcountry 1.0 is best for you. If you’re looking to safely approach steep lines that require crampons and an ice axe then check out the Backcountry 3.0 course.
