The AAI Foundations of Backcountry Touring Series Sponsored by Stio
September 29, 2020
We are excited to announce the launch of the American Avalanche Institute’s Foundations of Backcountry Touring with our friends at Stio.
These little nuggets of backcountry wisdom are brought to you in partnership with Stio. Stio makes some of the best outdoor clothing around, and we couldn’t have put this series together without them.
These will be short 10 to 15-minute discussions. So, don’t be late if you want to participate and ask questions. Our owner and lead instructor Sarah Carpenter will be on each week to talk about different aspects of traveling through the backcountry. From what gear to wear, to what to pack, to what resources are available.
Missed a LIVE session? No worries, we’ll be adding each session below right after they happen.
