    AKAKURA FIRST TRACKS program is an introductory and incremental all-day “level-up” event geared for ski, snowboard or telemark participants with strong intermediate (or higher) skiing/riding skills who want to know more about how to keep safe in the Backcountry while crushing some sweet lines. So, before we get the small group on too much of an incline, we cover the operation basics of avalanche transceiver, and probe use. Route-finding, hazard avoidance and avalanche phenomenon are also covered through the course of the day.
