The Sugarloaf/CVA Backcountry series is excited to announce our first ever 1/2 day guided tour up Burnt Mountain/Bracket Basin with the CVA ALPS Team. This event is aimed toward skiers or split boarders who currently have their own alpine-touring setup. We will work on improving off-piste skiing skills, skinning techniques and skinning efficiency. This is a great way to meet new people who are eager to improve their backcountry skills. The ALPS team will provide a roughly 1:2 instructor to participant ratio. Participants must be able to ski or ride advanced terrain, and have their own alpine touring or split boarding gear. The minimum age is 16. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and be able to ski advanced terrain. This will be a 1/2 day morning tour. 

There are only 15 spots available. 

Uphill passes will be provided

Participants will meet at the Competition Center at 8:00am
