Have you completed your AST1 and are wondering what to do next? Getting touring experience before signing up on your next course is key. But it can be challenging to get out there. Les Chèvres is offering you a full day of backcountry touring with an ACMG certified guide and an all-women group. And an 1h-Zoom session prior to the tour where your guide will help you create a trip plan.

This day is addressed to skiers and splitboarders who have some experience touring but want to gain more confidence using their equipment, skinning on longer routes and skiing on off piste terrain. 

We know that backcountry touring can be an intimidating sport. We focus on learning with and from other women where there is no pressure of performance and no wrong question. 

 

Inclusions:

  • 1h Zoom session with your guide – January 18th 7pm
  • One full day of Extremely Canadian guiding from 8:00 AM
  • Lift line priority
  • ACMG Certified Guide (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides)
  • Giveaways from our partners

 

Exclusions:

  • Lunch
  • Lift ticket (add-on option with registration)
  • Your skis or splitboard and touring equipment (see complete equipment list for details (20% off rentals available at EVO – contact us for details) 

 

 Ability Level:

Advanced-intermediate to expert skier or snowboarder with little touring experience.

Exertion Level:

Medium (~2+ hours of hiking)
