What: Steep Skiing Workshop
When: March 17 & 18
Weekend intensive session to help you master Alpental’s steep and ungroomed terrain. Instruction provided by high level PSIA instructors with extensive Alpental experience. Over the course of the weekend, classes will cover the expert terrain on the upper chair and into the backcountry – (conditions permitting) Alpental Pro Patrol will supervise entry into the backcountry. To enter the backcountry students will need to review Alpental’s Backcountry Safety page http://www.summitatsnoqualmie.com/Mountains/Safety/859/Backcountry-Safety. Students will need to have avalanche safety equipment (beacon, shovel, probe) and have the equivalent to avalanche awareness and companion rescue training to go through Alpental’s backcountry gate. Overnight accommodations at the rustic and charming Washington Alpine Club cabin along the Alpental road.
