On the morning of your ride you can come to our shop as early as 8:00 A.M. to sign waivers, get fitted with a helmet, walk through your avalanche gear, and watch a brief safety video. After you have completed the checkout process at our shop you can head out to meet your guide at the trailhead. Your guide will be waiting for you with your sled, avalanche, pack and your lunch. At the trailhead your guide will give you an in-depth overview of your sled and answer any questions you may have about the day. After you’ve finished you an awesome day of riding you’ll head back to the trailhead. You can head home, and your guide will take care of the rest. You will receive an invoice within 72 hours for fuel and damages (if applicable).
