Backcountry Ski Experience

Parents. Campers. Donors.  Friends!

Backcountry skiing?  What’s that?  Well,  basically, it’s when you get some skis and go into the mountains and ski… it’s beyond the resort.  It takes human power (your legs) to get yourself up the hill.  And then it takes gravity to get you down.  The going up looks a little like this:

 

 

And my favorite part, going down, looks a little like this:

So what’s happening this winter at camp?  We are doing backcountry skiing!  We have some good areas for this.  The hill above the pond (wide open, steep, safe). Nearby hills that are similarly open.  If the snow is fast (i.e. icy), we’ll ski on flatter terrain in a more cross country style.  If the snow is slow (i.e. powder) we’ll go all over the place and make turns!

Your child will learn basics of skiing and attempt telemark turns. They will get plenty of exercise and take skiing to a new level and beyond the resort.

You can sign up for this unique program within our winter camp program when you register for winter camp.  There is no extra charge for backcountry skiing.  Each session is an hour and a half and fit within the normal schedule. Your child will still be able to tube, skate and do all the other good stuff winter camp has to offer.

Hope to see you on the hill,

We like being right at camp with “other” opportunities available like tubing, LOTS of room, washer, dryer, woodstove for drying out and warming up.  We loved being able to crash together, and enjoyed having you all (staff) right there during the day.  The setting is absolutely gorgeous!  THE PRICE IS RIGHT  🙂     – Loureen Landis

We enjoy renting the BBC cabin because it fits our whole family (12-15 of us), it is close to many ski resorts, and the tubing hill is lots of fun!!  It is also nice to know that we are supporting BBC by renting the cabin during the off season!     – Erica Merrill

We love staying at BBC to escape our busy lives and the camp always feels like a home away from home to us. It’s a great way to foster a relationship with God through nature while supporting the camp.      – Jen Yoder
