Join the Tahoe Rim Trail Association for Snow Camping 101, where you will learn tips and tricks to enjoy a night out in the snowy backcountry. We welcome new and seasoned backcountry enthusiasts eager to add another season to their camping experiences by learning the skills to camp successfully in the snow.
Students can expect two live video sessions before a morning in the classroom then hitting the forest for an overnight experience. This course is designed to give students a basis for their winter adventures through classroom and field instruction.
The live video portions are conducted by your instructors and will provide concepts in trip planning, winter Leave No Trace principles, cooking in wintery conditions, critical gear needs, and staying warm in harsher environments. The field portion of this course is not an endurance test but will consist of a short snowshoe hike into a training area where students will sleep overnight and receive hands-on instruction in making a successful camp and how to use common gear while camping and traveling in the snow. We aim for students to walk away from the course with the additional skills, knowledge, and confidence to enjoy a wintry backcountry adventure solo or with family and friends.
