Join BLBCA and True Outdoors for a FREE Backcountry 101 clinic!

Whether you’ve already spent long days carving turns in backcountry powder, or you’re just considering venturing out for the first time, Backcountry 101 will have something for everyone.

B101, backcountry awareness, true outdoors“Learning safe travel skills is essential for anyone who likes to enjoy activities in the backcountry” said Brad Harrison, BLBCA’s Executive Director. “True Outdoors is the perfect venue for us to connect with backcountry enthusiasts just before the snow flies. The focus of this clinic is to help introduce equipment for safe travel through the backcountry in a winter environment, and where to go to learn the next steps.”

Harrison will share knowledge stemming from a notable career in the mountains in roles including:

  • Coordinator, Canadian Mountain and Ski Guide Program for Thompson Rivers University
  • Canadian Avalanche Association Professional Member
  • Former owner, operator and guide at Golden Alpine Holidays for 20+ years

“Though the main objective of Backcountry 101 is to share safe travel info in winter months, this session offers a chance to ask a veteran backcountry professional any question about overall mountain safety.” said Harrison.

Participants will also be able to see some of the latest in backcountry gear (boots, skis, bindings, skins, etc.) and avalanche safety gear (transceivers, airbags, probes, etc). We’ll also have some awesome draw items up for grabs from both the BLBCA and True Outdoors.

So why not join us for a great evening? It’s free – and full of great information.
