Backcountry skiing and snowboarding are enjoyed by passionate Brundage Mountain riders who like to experience fresh powder and awesome terrain outside the patrolled and controlled parts of the ski area.
Brundage Mountain wants everyone to know that having the right equipment and training is ESSENTIAL to having a safe backcountry experience. Those epic powder lines are spectacular. They are also potentially dangerous. Know before you go.
Here are some key aspects of AVALANCHE SAFETY:
It is highly recommended that anyone traveling in the backcountry take an avalanche training course.
The Payette Avalanche Center and Friends of the Payette Avalanche Center offer avalanche awareness courses regularly. Please contact the Payette Avalanche Center for more information.
Payette Powder Guides also offers Avalanche Awareness courses throughout the winter months. You can view the schedule of classes here.
