    Snowboard Mountaineering Clinic

    Exum’s 3-day Snowboard Mountaineering Clinic is for splitboarders who would like to ride some of the best snowboard terrain in the world.
    The clinic is designed to give intermediate backcountry snowboarders the chance to progress to the next level, and take on a high peak.

    If you ride blues and blacks at your local resort, or snowboard in the backcountry, if you think you’re ready for steeper and more technical terrain, this clinic is for you.

    We are offering this clinic with two options: lodging included* or you can come for just the snowboarding.

    You will spend 1 day on Snow King Mountain, also know as the “Town Hill” in Jackson. The accessibility and high concentration of expert terrain make this a perfect venue for steep snowboarding skills, introduction to technical rope work, or just refining your turns.

    The skills you practice will then be put to the test for the next 2 days while we venture up in the high peaks of the Tetons. Exum Guides are comprised of American Mountain Guides Association trained guides, AASI instructors and some of the most accomplished snowboard guides in the business. This is your chance to get coached by the best.

    The list of topics and skills covered includes : Gear selection, knots, introduction to technical rope work, use of an ice axe, crampons, steep snowboarding technique, partner communication, terrain assessment and hazard evaluation. Participants should be comfortable snowboarding blue terrain and harder, and be able to skin up a minimum of 4,000 feet in a day. Come to this camp fit and you will have more fun!

    Please call Brendan Burns (307-690-6677) or the Exum office if you have questions, or to register.

    CAMP DATE: Feb. 22-24
