Event description

Description

SheJumps is proud to partner with Backcountry Access (BCA) to build your snow safety skills before heading into the backcountry this winter. This women’s only beacon clinic will cover how to use your transceiver, shovel, and probe in a companion rescue situation. BCA has become the most trusted name in backcountry safety. They are dedicated to not only providing crucial life-saving backcountry gear, but educating backcountry travelers through hands-on clinics BCA in-house specialist Dana Cowley will introduce the four phases of the avalanche transceiver search: the signal search, coarse search, fine search, and pinpointing (probing).

Whether you spend every day in the backcountry or are just starting out and learning how to use your beacon, it is incredibly important to practice these skills so you’re ready for any situation. To spice things up, we will be offering BCA gear as prizes during a timed race at the end of the day! Join us to increase your independence in the backcountry and meet some new ski buddies too!

Logistics:
This 2 hour session will be outside, so please dress accordingly.
We suggest you bring your pack with your own beacon, probe and shovel so you can get to know your personal gear, but if you do not have all the gear, some will be provided by BCA.
Ski/snowboard/snowshoe equipment is not necessary, we will be traveling on foot.

BCA has generously offered 25% off retail for all women participating in the clinic! Join us to get your code and gear up for the season!
