Introduction & Why Ski in the Backcountry?

Welcome to the Backcountry Skiing course! Let's start with an introduction to the sport and the legend himself, Chris Davenport!

Things to Keep In Mind Before Traveling

We call this lesson, "Things to Keep in Mind Before Traveling in the Backcountry." But you can call it, "Check yourself before you wreck yourself."

Avalanche Awareness

Across these 6 chapters, we'll become familiar with a range of key topics—from understanding why most avalanches occur, to what goes into digging a proper snow pit.

Partner Selection

Without the right partner(s) in the backcountry, nothing else matters. This lesson focuses on the importance of this selection process and the consequences of selecting poorly.

The videos are fantastic and the course is so comprehensive - it goes MUCH deeper than a simple YouTube video."

"Chris's experience and diversity of exposure to various geographies and types of terrain make this course a must"
