Learning to ski & snowboard in the backcountry can be a significant challenge for even the most seasoned of outdoor adventurers. Specialized gear, proper preparation, as well as practical and technical knowledge is essential to begin skiing in the backcountry safely and efficiently. AT 101 has been developed specifically to introduce new skiers into the backcountry, to provide them with firsthand knowledge and experience, and to begin their transition into backcountry skiing in a safe and fun environment.
Canadian Adventure Company takes customers in a seamless transition from the front country to the backcountry with all the necessary gear, knowledge and expertise to make getting into the backcountry easier than ever before.
