Coalition Snow + TREW Gear Present
No, you’re not hallucinating - that really is snow outside on the ground. Albeit just a slight dusting, it still means that Winter is coming and it’s time to get your mind, heart, and soul back into backcountry mode.
That's why we've teamed up with TREW Gear for our third season of Backcountry Beta, a virtual event series designed to help us refresh our backcountry knowledge, learn new safety skills, open our eyes to different perspectives, and build our confidence in the mountains.
PREVIOUS BB SESSIONS
Multi Day Trip Planning
For the fifth installment of our Backcountry Beta Series in partnership with TREW Gear, we're going to discuss a topic that can seem daunting, multi-day trips. This session on March 8th is led by Coalition Snow Ambassador Betsey Peryea, an adaptive athlete with a full spinal fusion and a demyelinating nerve disease who spends her time skiing, climbing, hiking/backpacking, and training for her mountain goals.
Communication for Comfort & Safety in the Backcountry
Have you learned the hard way how crucial communication is while backcountry skiing/riding? Most people struggle with communication, so we need to put in the extra effort. Natasha Buffo brings the knowledge from seven years of community mental health tools to open our eyes and ears to the communication skills that can drastically improve comfort and safety while exploring the backcountry.
Terrain Selection & Risk Mitigation
In our third session, Coalition Ambassadors Clancy Sindlinger and Madi McKinstry, both of whom bring years of experience as ski patrollers and backcountry guides, will discuss Backcountry etiquette, risk assessment + mitigation, and terrain management in more complex terrain
Shift Into Your Backcountry Mindset
Winter is coming and it’s time to get your mind, heart, and soul back into backcountry mode. Our first event of the year will be led by Ginny White, a longtime TREW athlete, ski guide, and accredited snow forecaster. Ginny will be taking the reins and guiding us through how she preps for Winter.
