For a good chunk of the winter, the Backcountry team is holed up researching, writing, editing and skiing from our chosen snowy homes in Vermont, Idaho, B.C. and beyond. But as the publishing season comes to an end, we bring our trusted voice from the page to the pavement (well, really the skintrack) with Backcountry BASECAMP in a series of free, weekend-long events featuring gear demos, avalanche clinics, guided tours and more.

Attend the 11th annual Backcountry BASECAMP, presented by Scott Sports and Flylow, at a tour stop near you! Schedule and details below.
