Jackson Hole didn’t only see a foot and a half of snow in the last few days. It also saw the first stop of this year’s Backcountry Basecamp tour, presented by GORE-TEX and Marmot, the three-part, nationwide roadshow that’s bringing the backcountry scene to the masses. All weekend long, guides from Jackson Hole took groups of skiers on resort and OB tours where they talked avalanche safety and touring techniques. At the Basecamp yurt village, patrollers, avalanche forecasters and the BCM editors presented on backcountry decision making, avalanche education and the latest backcountry gear. Here’s a slideshow from the event, shot by Cody Downard.
Next up, the Basecamp heads south to Crested Butte, Colo. on March 15-16. For more details, visit backcountrymagazine.com/basecamp.
