Backcountry Skiing and Boarding

A number of club members participate in the fast growing activity of backcountry skiing and snowboarding.  

While it's hard to plan trips in advance given the variability of avalanche conditions, there are a few areas (e.g. Yodelin) that are safe in almost any conditions.  So there are occasional backcountry trips on the schedule.

Most backcountry trips are organized as meetups though.  

AT gear is the most common equipment among participants, though many of us Telemark and some ride splitboards.
