Advanced Resort Skiers/Beginner Backcountry Skiers & Riders
Step Zero: Advanced Ski/Riding Skills
Be able to ski black diamond runs and off-piste at the ski resort. You don’t have to jump off cliffs or anything, but you do need to be able to maneuver around complex unmarked obstacles in the backcountry. Don’t start thinking about heading into the backcountry until you are an advanced skier or rider.
