We are very excited to kick off another season of the JHSC Backcountry programs! Athletes in our 4 month program will hit the ground on Thursday at Snow King. The program is full this year with 10 athletes. We will cover avalanche awareness, route finding, first aid, tour planning, and group management skills to name a few.
New this year is the Mini Mountaineers team. This team is for younger athletes ages 10-12 and it will run for 6 weeks beginning in Febuary. Skis, skins, touring boots and beacon shovel probe pack kits are available for rental for this program making it great for kids just getting into the sport! There is still one spot open in this program so please contact us is you are interested in joining.
Stay tuned here to our monthly newsletter to find trip reports and updates on how the team is making it through the winter!
