SAACnd Step builds on the SAAC Basic Camp. However, prior participation in the latter is not necessarily required. The camp is all about the alpine experience, so it will give you the opportunity to enhance and articulate your knowledge of terrain and snow conditions as well as group dynamics so that you can make the right decisions in the backcountry and become a totally independent freerider. Mountain guides will help you figure out the best way to plan a tour and how to ride safely in alpine terrain. In the evenings, you'll discuss your experiences and plan your next route.
