March 28-April 1, Backcountry Ski Course
RMI's Backcountry Ski Course takes place on the slopes of Mt. Rainier and takes full advantage of the abundant snow fall and terrain.. This course is designed for intermediate to advanced skiers seeking to safely access the backcountry and lead their own ski tours. No previous ski touring experience is required, but participants need to posses solid intermediate to advanced skiing skills – the ability to ski moderate ungroomed terrain in ski areas comfortably – in order to participate in the program. The course is designed to be both fun and safe. We won't be skiing any slopes that have anyone trembling in their ski boots, but you can count on getting plenty of skiing matched to your comfort level. Our Backcountry Skiing Course functions as pre-requisite to our Ski Mountaineering Course or as a stand-alone program. www.rmiguides.com/mt-rainier/ski-touring
