The Sugarloaf/CVA Backcountry series is excited to announce our 1/2 day guided tour up Burnt Mountain with CVA Backcountry Program Director, Patrick Scanlan. This event is aimed toward skiers and split boarders. Split boarders must have their own touring setup. Skiers may bring their own setup or rent a touring setup from Downhill Supply Company on Sugarloaf Mountain. 

The camp is built to be an introduction to backcountry skiing. It is designed for high school skiers of all disciplines who are interested in backcountry skiing and ski touring. Skiers will go hunting for the best snow around Sugarloaf, work on uphill and downhill techniques and transitions, and come away with a comprehensive understanding of what this rapidly growing sport is all about.

Learn how to take your racing or freestyle skills and bring them far off trail in this one-day ADVENTURE!

We will meet at 8am in the Competition Center to outline the day, define the goals for the group, and go over any gear and clothing questions. Campers will skin up Burnt mountain, work on skinning techniques, track setting, and line selection. Let's have fun as we work through ski touring transitions, pick a line and enjoy the earned turns.

This is a great way to meet new people who are eager to improve their backcountry skills. Participants must be able to ski or ride advanced terrain, and have their own or rent alpine touring or split boarding gear. The minimum age is 14, high school grades 9-12. This will be a 1/2 day morning tour.  

Participants will meet at the Competition Center at 8:00am. Please pack snacks to eat during the day. Campers provide their own lunch. Pick up is at 1pm at the Competition Center. 

Full cost of the camp is due with registration.  

*Cost shown is the discounted rate for cash price and only applies to payments made by cash or check. Credit card payments are at a non-discounted rate.
