Backcountry Basecamp 2018

2018 Backcountry Basecamp Presented by Scott

BASECAMP 5.0 – Backcountry Magazine teams up with Scott Sports to spread mountain education across the country

Jeffersonville, Vt. (for immediate release) – For more than 20 years, Backcountry Magazine has been committed to educating its community on how to safely travel untracked terrain. And for five years we’ve been taking the message from the pages to the people. Starting in January, we’re teaming up with Scott Sports to bring that knowledge to resorts in California, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado and Vermont for the fifth-annual Backcountry BASECAMP Tour.

As they travel throughout the country spreading safety and stoke, join the editors of Backcountry Magazine, alongside guides, forecasters, AIARE instructors and gear experts for a resort-based showcase of all things backcountry—including demos, avalanche education, guided tours and a huge raffle.

This winter is all about getting farther out and back safely.
