CVA Backcountry/Sugarloaf Big Mountain Ski Touring Camps


Similar to the mission of CVA Backcountry, the Sugarloaf Big Mountain program offers weekend sessions for young athletes interested in ski touring and taking their skiing skills outside the ski area boundary.  


The Big Mountain Program introduces kids to basic avalanche training, winter camping scenarios, and backcountry awareness, while skiing or riding Sugarloaf's legendary sidecountry terrain. When conditions permit, the group will explore off-piste using touring equipment.”


Over the course of the winter, the CVA Backcountry Program will join forces with the Sugarloaf Big Mountain Program to offer day camps in some of the best sidecountry terrain on the East coast with an incredible coaching staff. This opportunity is open to any interested athlete age 10-17. Stay tuned for 2019/2020 camp dates.
