This Backcountry Resort Is 100 Percent Human Powered
What do you think? Would something like this work in the Pacific Northwest? Would it be a "safer" alternative to un-managed backcountry skiing?
“There’s no one doing quite what we’re doing here,” Woodward says. “We’re taking boundary markings from ski resorts, the community aspect from climbing gyms, we’re thinking about education like ski school—we’re taking all of these pieces and combining them into something that offers more control and convenience than a traditional backcountry experience. We think people are ready to try something new, get away from the crowds, find better snow, and have a wilderness experience and learn something.”
