Arc’teryx Hosts Virtual Backcountry Academy
Last winter, Powder Cloud attended the Arc’teryx Backcountry Academy in Jackson, Wyo. We found it to be an extremely valuable and fun event that we’d recommend it to all levels of backcountry skiers. (Read the article here.) This year, Arc’teryx restructured the event in a virtual format. Though it’s impossible to replicate the Academy online, they did a wonderful job and it’s well worth exploring.
The virtual event is a collection of clinics, podcasts, educational resources, panel discussions, and some inspiring films that will expand your skill sets and further your education in a variety of disciplines. The event was last week, yet most of the content has been made available. Most are free, yet a few, like the clinics, require a fee.
