Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Club

The backcountry club strives to provide resources that enable students to get out skiing and snowboarding in the backcountry. We offer the avalanche one course every year and the avalanche two course every other year at a reduced price to ensure that students who are part of the club are learning how to make safe decisions regarding where to ride in the backcountry. Money spent on gas to and from the mountain can be reimbursed if it's a club trip! We facilitate fun...
