Whether this is your first time in the backcountry or you’re getting ready to take your AIARE Avalanche 1 course, we have a backcountry lesson for wherever you are in your progression. Scroll down to select which course is best for you. ***Please note that lessons don't include access to the mountain and all participants are required to carry a beacon, shovel and probe to leave the base area. You'll need a season pass or day ticket with your lesson. Snow safety gear rentals are available.
After practicing your avalanche and backcountry skills, you’re about to drop into your best untouched powder run of the season, and there’s not another soul around. That’s because you have access to Bluebird Backcountry’s 3,000 acres of out-of-bounds terrain. This fully customizable, out-of-bounds skiing lesson is available only with one of our professional guides — and they know exactly where to go.
Women play an important role in the dynamics of the backcountry. In this womxn's only clinic, you'll learn tricks, tips, and knowledge that will empower you in the backcountry, as well as improve your efficiency and performance. This clinic also gives participants the opportunity to build camaraderie and ask backcountry-related questions in a female-only environment.
