Join MAA members near Matterhorn Peak for backcountry skiing. This is a multi-day event featuring a ski descent of a series of sweet backcounty couloirs. This is meant to be an enjoyable trip, challenging but manageable. The slopes all have moderate consequences and top off at 40 degrees, equivalent to a good black diamond at a Tahoe resort. MTN 2 and SKI 2 training or equivalent winter camping and backcountry skiing experience recommended. We have room for 10. Avalanche certification and equipment are required.
