About the event

Welcome to our intro to backcountry series! Come join this hands-on session open to all to learn about what backcountry is all about. If you decide you want to try it, we'll fit you with gear and take you out for low-key uphill travel clinic at a later date (see Intro to Uphill Travel events on our Backcountry Page!)

Here's what's included:

  • Learn what a day in the backcountry looks like and why everyone's doing it! We'll talk about why it's not as intense as most people think
  • Learn about backcountry travel and safety gear
  • What to carry — In depth look at what's in a backcountry day pack
  • Demo and get fitted for gear (Intro to Uphill Travel participants only)
  • Practice gear use at GH
