Pine Mountain Sports is hosting an evening with SCARPA & G3 Genuine Guide Gear to delve into the equipment required to transition from inbounds skiing into the backcountry.

Topics to be covered*:
• Traditional alpine skis VS backcountry skis
• Different boot options available
• Choosing the proper skins
• Basic safety tools required

All participants will go home with a free G3 ski strap, a key piece to your backcountry gear kit.

There will also be a silent auction benefitting Volunteers in Medicine Clinic of the Cascades-VIM . It’s a great chance to bid on some sweet outdoor gear from brands like SCARPA, MSR – Mountain Safety Research, Therm-a-Rest and Osprey Packs
