Mountain Sledding Workshop

ONE DAY WORKSHOP

Looking for a COVID friendly way to jump start your snowmobile season?  A Mountain Sledding Workshop is the perfect way get out with a few professional mountain guides/coaches and knock the cobwebs off your gear and your skills!  A quick overview of your avalanche equipment and a brief refresher on companion rescue will jumpstart the morning before coaches go over proper riding technique, create opportunities to practice, a refresh on what’s in their bag, along with tips and tricks to make your riding days roll as smooth as possible.

There is no way to get back in the ‘swing of things’ then by surrounding yourself with likeminded riders and a few professionals to reset your routines.  Our coaches and guides are very skilled riders that love to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the backcountry.
