About Us


Our mission to cross country skiers, snowshoers, and backcountry snowboarders is two fold:

  1. Training Series. To provide an instructional series in winter backcountry skills, both in a classroom setting (one Saturday in January) and in two week-end field trips. A special group for families interested in sharing this winter experience with their children is also available.

  2. Scheduled Alumni Trips. To offer weekend (and longer) scheduled trips of various difficulty, under our experienced leadership, to those who have completed our training series.
