BSAW: SheJumps x Alpenglow Expeditions – Get Ready for the Backcountry
Alpenglow Expeditions at Palisades Tahoe
Posted By: Tahoe Fund
Join SheJumps and Alpenglow Expeditions to get prepped for the 2023/24 backcountry season with our Get Ready for Backcountry evening on Friday, December 15th! We’re really excited to be included in this year’s week of great backcountry programming as part of the Tahoe Backcountry Safety Awareness Week (December 11 – 16) with our Friday night event! Tickets are required for this event, follow the button to the right to purchase a ticket.
During this women-focused event, you’ll hear from some of Alpenglow’s women guides about what they include in their repair and first aid kits, and what they put in their pack for a successful day in the backcountry! Learn about what to look for when dusting off your beacon from summer, and how to seek out additional training and continuing education this winter.
Demos + Do-it-yourself stations
Following the lecture and Q&A, we’ll have demos to show you how to cut new skins and wax your skis/board, with do-it-yourself stations set up afterwards. Please bring your own gear if you want to give it a fresh wax or get your skins cut. No prior backcountry experience is necessary to attend! There will be plenty of time to connect with Alpenglow guides after the demos and with other women to find new backcountry buddies, all over another glass of wine or beer.
Timeline for the event:
- 6:00-6:30 Sign In + Happy Hour
- 6:30 – 7:30 Lecture
