Big Mountain Terrain with Billy Haas of Samsara

Saturday, December 04, 2021
06:45 PM - 08:15 PM
Skimo Co
Skimo Co, Fort Union Boulevard, Cottonwood Heights, UT, USA

Learn how to approach big mountain terrain by using a decision making framework, selecting the right equipment, and mitigating hazards with technical skills!


At the shop on Dec 4, IFMGA guide Billy Haas will be giving a free in-person presentation on these topics, including how to set up a simple, yet effective technique for providing ski belays. Time and weight barriers often keep skiers from adding this type of security, but with nothing more than a small rope and a few pieces of equipment, it can be an excellent tool to mitigate avalanche, fall, and other objective hazards. 


This event will also serve as a useful introduction to the curriculum of Samsara’s Big Mountain Snow Safety Program in the Wasatch - a 4-day course designed to enable advanced skiers to refine and grow their skill sets in complex terrain.


Space is limited!
