Hi all, I don't post here much but I thought I would ask this group a question? Is/are there adult winter expert ski camps located near us? Almost anywhere on the west coast with the right terrain) will work except Canada. (1 misdemeanor 20 years ago and they won't let me in...they're loss) What I mean is this...I'm an advanced "charger" of a skier. But I've never gone backcountry (recently moved here from the east coast) and I'm very much looking to push myself and get better. So I'm looking for a "camp" or "instruction" or a course designed to help me navigate and survive the most challenging terrain. ie: steeps, couloirs, cliffs, tight trees etc. Yes, I'm that weirdo the dreams of one day skiing pillow-lines and hucking 20 footers. I want to ski spines in AK and tackle the tough lines. But I also want to survive while doing it. I'm 43 and set a goal to make it to AK. I'll be taking my AVY I course this winter (late to mid season) And that's the first step, but there's so much more to learn/think about...line choice, body position for steeps, technical chutes, how to land cliffs. I know I'll never be selected for any freeride world tour event...but being in a zone like that and know how to charge that type of terrain effectively is my goal. Is there a program you know of that would help me achieve this? Is there a "point in the right direction I haven't found or haven't thought of? I already found. - Jackson's "steep & Deep camp" -American Alpine Institute - Extreme ski course -Kim's ski camp at Alta -And also thought about going with a guide for several days at Silverton Mountain CO Thanks for any advice in advance.
