BEGINNER SKI WORKSHOP 

Getting into skiing and snowboarding can be stressful, overwhelming, and can often prevent individuals from entering the sport entirely. Join us at Outdoor Rec for this FREE workshop where we will go over all the ins and outs a skier should know.

We will discuss the different types of skis, snowboards, and bindings for both, where to go skiing, what gear you need, and where to get it. We will also discuss what gear, apparel, and services we at Outdoor Rec provide, as well as local shops we recommend. Additionally, if you are looking to buy your own equipment, we’ll discuss what to look for so you can make an informed purchase.

AVALANCHE AWARENESS CLINIC    

  

Crowded lift lines can suck the life out of your love and passion for skiing and snowboarding. If you plan on skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling in the mountains this winter, it is best to have some basic knowledge of avalanches, the danger they pose, and how to identify and avoid avalanche terrain.

In this avalanche awareness class, we will discuss all of that as well as necessary safety equipment when traveling in avalanche terrain and resources for continued avalanche education.
