Backcountry Skills, Knowledge and Preparation...

Visiting the backcounty of the Rocky Mountains requires knowledge and preparation.

You assume certain risks and expect certain hazards when you travel in the high country. Self-guided tour means that you look after yourself once you're there. You should be experienced in backcountry navigation, and be prepared to carry appropriate survival gear. Temperatures in the winter they range from -35°C to +10°C.

You are responsible for ensuring that you are properly equipped with appropriate outdoor clothing and gear, including but not limited to, winter equipment; skins, avalanche beacons, shovels & probes.
