DSC_0120Snow Intermediate Course (SIC):

  • If you are a backpacker who wants to start your summer season “early,”
  • If you have been a little leery of slipping on snow, getting wet and cold, or finding your way along a buried trail,
  • These 7-day, springtime, mini-PCT-thru-hikes apply the knowledge and skills you learned at your Snow Basics basecamp into a typical, daily-moving, medium-altitude, backpacking-styled outing over the challenges of both dry-trail and snow!

Who says you can’t start backpacking in May?
