Adventure East, Friday Night Lights – Skiing at Berkshire East

January 26 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Join us for a fun evening of skiing under the bright lights at Berkshire East!

Alpine touring is great way to earn your turns by touring uphill and returning downhill alpine skiing. This is a two-hour group lesson on the basics of alpine ski touring. We will be “skinning” uphill so we can then ski back down. The lesson will cover the following topics:

  • Putting skins on your skis
  • Skinning technique
  • Making turns going uphill
  • Transitioning from uphill mode to downhill mode
  • Removing, folding and storing your skins
  • Downhill techniques for skiing in the backcountry

This is not a learn to ski class; you should already know how to ski on intermediate trails that are not groomed. The terrain we will ski down on can include beginner, intermediate or expert terrain depending on our location and group abilities. One of the exciting parts of backcountry skiing is the variety of conditions and terrain. You’ll gain an appreciation for many different snow conditions.
