Women's backcountry ski touring trip

We have a few spots available for our first ski trip this Saturday, Jan. 11.

This is a beginner level class at the Willow Creek ski area led by Stacy Wells. We will ski together as a group. The goal of the class is to learn the necessary tools to feel comfortable on your own in the backcountry.

Instruction will focus on using Telemark skis, gliding and climbing on snow with skins and different waxes. How to use USGS maps and the "Avalanche Triangle" will be covered. Cost $40. Telemark ski packages can be rented from NOLS on Friday for $18 or you can bring your own gear. We will leave from the CWC Lander Center at 10AM and return to Lander by 3PM. For more information and to register, please call CWC at 332-3394.
