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 a full day in the classroom on the first day, followed by an afternoon in the field on the second day. This year’s course does not have an overnight component. It is designed to give students a basis for their winter adventures through classroom and field instruction.
The classroom portion 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 receive hands-on instruction in making a successful camp and how to use gear commonly used while camping and traveling in the snow. Our goal is 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.
