Women's Winter Backcountry Skills Clinic
8:00 AM
Missoula Avalanche, UM Campus Rec Outdoor Program and Yurtski are teaming up to offer a Yurt-based Women's only Backcountry Skills Clinic March 3rd - 5th. This class is designed to give you all the information you need to get out into the backcountry. We'll cover everything from staying warm and safe, to pack essentials, skinning techniques, route finding techniques, basic beacon training and rescue scenarios. Instructors for this course love sharing from their deep well of experience teaching winter outdoor skills.

No Prior Backcountry Experience is Necessary, but participants must be able to confidently ski or snowboard blue/black resort runs, and have (or rent) a beacon, shovel and mode of travel (skins or snowshoes). We will strive to have an environment where everyone is comfortable asking questions, feels safe and we will tailor our curriculum to meet the group's needs and goals.

This Special Course costs $425; this includes yurt stay, instructors, all meals and gear haul. Yurtski lies deep in the backcountry of the Swan Mountains and offers a great learning environment.
