terrain management and how to not be the last
of all your ski buddies
This is a
mentorship event and is part of the AMP (Alpine
Mentorship) program organized by ACC Calgary
Alpine Chair jointly with ACMG Guide Jeff
Bullock. For level 1-2 participants the
expectation is that you have done a handful of
backcountry splitboard trips and know how to
board down basic terrain. You have also
completed AST1. The goal of this event is to
learn how to improve your terrain selection on
the up and down, setting good up tracks,
efficient movements on a split board, tips for
when and how to ski your split, along with
downhill boarding such as making controlled
turns in non-groomed runs, around trees,
anticipating difficult terrain. How to increase
transitions from up to down will also be
covered. Cost of 110$ per
AST1 is mandatory. BITS friendly if you are
an experienced boarder. Send me a quick summary
of your ski/tour experience. Include a few of
your destinations. Joelgamache10@gmail.com
Cost is 110 per person.
