2017 Backcountry Basecamp

Date: Sat Mar 04, 2017 to Sun Mar 05, 2017
Location: Teton Village




Backcountry Magazine, teams up with AIARE, Arc’teryx, Voilé for a Weekend of Backcountry Education at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Backcountry Magazine, in association with Arc’teryx and Voilé, is proud to announce that it will return to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort the weekend of March 4-5 as part of its annual BASECAMP Tour. “We’re thrilled to be able to bring our event back to Jackson,” says Adam Howard, Backcountry Magazine’s Editorial Director. “The number of people we engaged last year through the added AIARE demonstrations was great to see and the atmosphere at the Alpenhof on Saturday night was unreal.”

At the Jackson Hole BASECAMP stop, Backcountry Magazine staff will showcase the newest equipment, including skis, skins, splitboards, beacons, shovels, probes and airbag packs, all in a yurt-based setting. Also, Arc’teryx will be on hand all weekend showing off their technical outerwear and packs. AIARE educators will conduct demos and classes each day, and Jackson Hole Guides will take visitors on complimentary backcountry tours with an emphasis on safety education. On Saturday at 5 p.m., BASECAMP hosts a huge party and huger raffle at the Alpenhof Lodge with proceeds benefiting Teton County Search and Rescue.
