Discover Backcountry Snowsports Indoors This Weekend

J2SkiNews posted 04-Oct



It seems a little like the antithesis of what you would expect if you wanted to experience the freedom of the great outdoors by skiing and boarding in the back country, but this weekend the Tamworth Snowdome indoor snow centre is staging a Discover Backcountry day.

Sponsored by retailer Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, the day will include free sessions including the chance to explore and test the latest backcountry gear, how to perfect your skinning technique, transceiver training as well as ski films, talks and lots more.

Joining the Ellis Brigham team at the event will be Mountain Guides and Athletes; Martin Chester, Matt Helliker and Blair Aitken, expert coaches from New Generation Ski School, Glenmore Lodge and brands including Atomic, Black Crows, Black Diamond, Nordica and many more.
"The event has been carefully designed to cover everything you need to know about the backcountry," said Ellis Brigham Ski Buyer, Steve Wells, who added, "It's aimed at those who are new to backcountry as well as those have spent some time enjoying all the backcountry has to offer. One thing is guaranteed, you will leave the event with new friends, new-found skills and renewed confidence for when you skin up and click in this winter."

Entry to the event this Saturday, 5th October, is free, as are the talks, workshops, transceiver training and there's no charge to borrow any of the equipment. The coaching is free too, the only cost is slope time.

Ah, you spotted the subtle sales angle. I gather 3 hours for the price of 2 - so they must be calculating you'll use the lift 33% less?
