Anyone done any backcountry/sidecountry off resort skiing?
I am all set up this year to get out into the backcountry! I still bought the resort pass (Tahoe) but am going to be getting out of the lines and tracking down some fresh turns. I have all my gear already, shovel, beacon, probe, friend, avalung, the whole nine yards. Any experience in the backcountry? Any tips for a newbie?
