Where to Go?

Newcomers and experts alike share one thing – the constant search for new terrain and fresh tracks. Here are some resources to help you plan your next outing and figure out where to go:

Buying or Renting Equipment

Whether you are in the market for cross-country (XC) or alpine touring (AT) skis, we have some information on how to navigate the all options out there. Be sure to check out our Ski Equipment Explanation Matrix as a starting point to familiarize yourself with the different terminology associated with equipment. When in doubt, you can always check with a local ski shop for additional guidance.

If you plan to rent gear ahead of one of our clinics or workshops, make sure to try and reserve in advance and leave plenty of time to pick it up – preferably the night before. Lines can be long especially during peak season, even with advance reservations.

Safety is paramount in avalanche terrain, which is why we have a page dedicated to getting (and staying) educated. Check out our Get Avalanche Educated! page to learn more.

We have thousands of publicly available photos of our members and participants from our many events getting out and having fun.
