This will be an easy to moderate day with a focus on backcountry and avalanche safety skills. The location will be determined prior to the trip based on conditions and weather.
Please ensure that you re-read the information provided in the BITS program sign up (Dec 18 event) with regards to gear, homework and trip planning.
