“I do uphill skiing; I don’t do downhill skiing. I think that’s for nerd amateurs.” –

-Judah Friedlander-

Backcountry skiing ⛷ is the combination of all types of skiing. Nordic, Telemark, Downhill, Cross Country and Alpine Touring; with the majority of the time spent going uphill. –

-The best use of this time is to make observations of the snowpack, weather & route options and communicate them with our partners.-

-Teamwork in the backcountry environment is critical. Communicating is just one attribute to a successful group. What else do you do to contribute to your group?-

-@dirkcollins and @maxfriedman taking it all in and enjoying the up!-
