Our Backcountry Ski Clinic is a fantastic introduction to the world of backcountry skiing and is designed for the intermediate to advanced in-bounds skier who wants to go beyond the lifts and resorts. This two-day clinic starts with day one at the Mt. Shasta Ski Park to refine your techniques and make adjustments to the new gear. Start on groomed terrain while progressively moving to terrain that we will experience on a backcountry ski. Receive instruction from a PSIA certified ski instructor or backcountry ski guide on techniques for backcountry skiing.
Day two takes us into Mt Shasta’s famed backcountry. A full day tour on the lower mountain puts the skills from day one into action as well as learning new tactics. This day will focus on learning how to select safely and negotiate the uphill terrain. Our tour teaches us how to do this as efficiently as possible all leading up to an epic downhill adventure.
Mt Shasta is perhaps the best location in the world for the aspiring backcountry skier. Steep chutes, wide open bowls, and mellow glades offer an amazing variety for anyone learning to backcountry ski. Join our guides and perfect your backcountry skiing in some of the best backcountry skiing in California.
