Backcountry BASECAMP Schedule of Events: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Backcountry Magazine, in association with GORE-TEX, Marmot and Voilé, is proud to announce that it will be kicking off its third-annual nationwide backcountry skiing and snowboarding BASECAMP tour tomorrow at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

At the Jackson BASECAMP stop, Backcountry Magazine staff will showcase the newest backcountry equipment like skis, skins, splitboards and more; safety gear like beacons, shovels, probes and airbag packs; and technical outerwear, helmets, gloves, etc. all in a yurt-based setting.
