The Mountain Savvy workshops are for 12 to 14-year-olds interested in exploring Eaglecrest and it's environs on skis and boards. This workshop is open to skiers and riders who can comfortably ski/ride the East and West Bowls in most conditions. This workshop requires the ability to ski or ride off the groomed trails in all conditions. Participants will get off the groomers and explore Eaglecrest's off piste terrain! Workshop is taught by certified Eaglecrest patrollers and experienced mountain guides.
This workshop will provide a one day introduction to the important skills for exploring our mountain environment. It will identify the different things to be aware of both inside and outside the ski area boundaries. It will introduce tools and tactics to keep participants and their friends safe regardless of where they choose to ski or ride. Mountain Savvy will give them the foundation for developing good decision-making skills.
If you already own or have access to travel and rescue gear such as a compass, gps, avalanche beacon, probe, or shovel please bring these tools. These tools will be provided if you do not have access.
The workshop runs from 10am - 2pm on the following dates. Participants meet at the nest and be ready to spend the day out on the mountain. Participants will need to bring a sack lunch and plenty of water. Program fee is $20 and participants must provide their own lift tickets or have a season pass.
